El Solo is large stratovolcano composed of nine eruptive centers located west of Nevados del Ojos de Salado and SE of Tres Cruces volcano. The 6205-m-high volcano was the source of major rhyodacitic pyroclastic-flow deposits erupted during the Holocene that thickly fill adjacent valleys (González-Ferrán, 1995).
