The other option for descent is just to hike north down the ridge to the saddle, where you would have smartly left your excess gear, and reverse the approach, hoping to get picked up by some friendly local on the long walk back to town. Best time to climb: August-October.   Once at the ledge, there are two options: To the left, exit through the notch--the finish of Riders on the Sun. Or, straight up through this little doozy, which protects well, but climbs awkwardly. Crux of the route (5.9+) The route ends about 10 meters up from here.   The Diehedral (3rd) pitch is sorta runout, pretty sustained, steep, but moderate (5.7-8ish) climbing, with a 5.9 crux to exit. Rope drag can be an issue, forcing a belay at the ledge once out of the dihedral.    The first pitch (5.7) of Diedro de La Luna. Run that sucker all the way to a small roof, from which point you can turn it left (5.8) or right (5.?) and then up through some 4th class dirt to the base of the Diehedral pitch.  For an epic day, one can carry all gear up the climb, walk south along the 2nd class ridge to the summit proper (Mamalluca has 3 peaks) and then drop down the steep west face back to the town of S. Isidro, just outside of Vicuņa. Lots of walking, but it is gorgeous and fun.
