Detailed Product Description
Germany, 1999, 2nd edition. 68 single-sided pp, b/w diagrams, color photos. In German. Softcover (plastic report cover). Fine condition.

Self-published scientific trip report by Roland Hogenschurz and Eva Harnisch of their 1994 expedition to Ojos Del Salado.

Wikipedia: Ojos del Salado is the highest volcano in the world and the second highest mountain in South America. Ojos del Salado, on the border between Chile and Argentina, is rarely covered with snow due to its location in the Atacama Desert.

The first climb to the mountain was carried out in 1937 with a Polish scientific tour group.

Since there is no record of any explosion reports, it is considered as an extinct volcano. However, there is still gas mobility. In 1937, 1956 and 14 November 1994, water and sulfur vapors were exposed.

Although Ojos del Salado has been identified as the highest mountain of the continent, with some measurements made in the 20th century, higher than in Aconcagua , new GPS- based measurements do not approve this result. Even in 1994, Ojos del Salado became the third highest mountain in South America when Monte Pissis mountain climbed to 6.882 m. However, in the following years it was determined that this measurement was wrong, and today it is known that Ojos del Salado is 80 Sal100 m higher than this mountain (the new measurement is 6.795 m).

The summit allows only experienced mountaineers to climb because of its unusual height and heat. It is estimated that this place was the place where the Incas met their sacrifice rituals because of the sacrificial sites found at the summit.

Ojos del Salado is a world record. On March 4, 2005, German Matthias Jeschke reached the 6.358m level with the Toyota Landcruiser 90 V6 , breaking the "highest altitude in a car" record.
