Thanks to Scott Patterson for adding this peak.

WE climbed this peak in January 1999 by default. We were planning on climbing Nevado Ruiz, but had to settle for Olleta because of teh eruption danger on Nevado Ruiz. Olleta is a good easy 15,912 mountain and there are great views of Ruiz from the summit. You drive to almost 15,000 feet so it must be one of teh easiest mountains of it's height in the world. Find a driver in Manizales.

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

    Easy climb with excellent views of Ruiz. We were not allowed to climb Ruiz because of eruption danger. One of the easiest climbs of it's height in the world, but what a beautiful view.
