The actual Volcan Baru peak (HP)is shown at the wrong location (FYI); it is actually NW of the last set of towers that can be seen on the ridge. On the final approach of the vast array of towers on the ridge is a small sub-peak with one lone small tower that guards the peak before the last two hairpin curves in the road. Poor elevation information avaialable so was estimated from terrain data and field verification and poor GPS signal.

Saddle is on the maintenance road is col at 10820 plus or minus
