Nevado San Francisco at 6018m is the most common acclimitization peak in the Puna de Atacama region, and probably one of the easiest 6000m peaks (technically speaking) out there. The route is glaciated up high and includes one exposed traverse but is otherwise straightforward and the route is generally very well trodden. Still, it is a snow-capped 6000m+ mountain, so you should have experience and caution!
