The most southerly 6000m peak is an interesting mountaineering and ski-touring objective. Because of its altitude, it requires proper acclimatization.
The W ridge of Marmolejo is classically reached from the S from Baños Morales but it can also be reached from the N, from the Termas del Plomo.
D1: From Baños Morales (1800m), hike E to a first camp in the Engorda Valley at aprox. 2500m, at the foot of Volcán San José.
D2: Continue N up to a second camp at the N end of the Estero Colina valley, some 10km away, at aprox. 3400m.
D3: Continue N up a steep couloir (>40°) which leads to a notch on the main West ridge or Marmolejo, at aprox. 4200m. There are good camping sites on the N side of the ridge.
D4: Walk or skin up the W ridge to the summit.
