Thanks to Andrés for adding this peak.
Also known as Cerro Escorial. A young basaltic volcano, south of Lanín volcano. A stratovolcano of Pleistocene age.
The route is very simple, with a path well marked starting in Laguna Verde, crosing the forest and continue until it turns to the right, passing the lava trail behind, and start to climb the volcano itself. It's a very nice walk up for a full day journey. The crater reaches in 4-5 hours. In the opposite slope lies the summit, well marked by rocks and coihue sticks.
NOTE: Trip reports were previously called "Summit Logs" - same feature, new name
There is one trip report for Achen Niyeu.
