Thanks to Uwe Kraus for adding this peak.

La Ramada belongs to the Cordon de la Ramada. The highest mountain and the probably most climbed summit in this range is Mercedario. Since the access is not so easy all the mountains that are located in the south of Mercedario are only very rarely visited. From Santa Ana that you only can reach by 4WD you have to hike at least one and a half days to reach the base camp Pirca de Polacos. You have to cross the Rio Colorado for several times which not always is possible when the river is in flood. But therefore you are compensated with a fantastic and almost untouched landscape.

Sorry, we don't currently have the latitude and longitude of Alma Negra in our database. Therefore we can't show this peak on a map.
