Cerro Pantojo is an eroded 1897-m-high dominantly basaltic volcano of Pleistocene age along the Chile-Argentina border with a Holocene cinder cone on the Argentinian side (Moreno 1985, pers. comm). It lies SSW of Lake Constancia, which is located immediately west of the Argentinian border, and has a dramatic steep-sided summit pinnacle.
