Quebrada Llaca Rock Climbing
Looking up into the curving corner.
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 is home to multi-pitch sport routes like "Misión Lunática", multi-pitch trad on "La Brichera" and bouldering at the Llaca Boulders.
The rock is granite, and in the dry season (May-September) the valley gets sun for most of the day.
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.
