Quebrada Llaca is the leftmost of four obvious quebradas ("gaps" or "canyons" in Spanish) in the Cordillera Blanca as seen from the city of Huaraz. It is a high altitude climbing area in Huascarán National Park which holds potential for some of the best bouldering in the Huaraz area. It is also home to multi-pitch sport routes including "Misión Lunática" and is the point of access to peaks such as Ranrapalca and Ocshapalca.

The rock is granite, and in the dry season (May-September) the valley gets sun for most of the day.

Getting There 

From Huaraz: The easiest way to reach Llaca is to catch a taxi asking if they go to "Llaca". The ride should cost anywhere between 80 and 100 soles (US $25-$33). Entrance into Huascarán National Park costs 5 soles (US $1.50) for a day, or if you plan to camp 65 soles (US $22) for a National Park pass good for a month.

Once you enter the quebrada, you will wind up the road until you cross a river. At the junction of the road and river sits the Llaca Boulders.
