We took a good long view of this mountain from Cerro Catedral. It stands at over 3000m and is the highest in the region. The highest part of this mountain requires some winter mountaineering skills, and unless you are experienced a local Guide. Mike

Tornado Mountain, so called because when big chunks of ice breaks and falls it sounds like a tornado. We were not lucky enough to witness it but stooped and took pictures and walked around the picture perfect grounds
