Quebrada Paron Rock Climbing
One, of about ten, plaques to dead climbers
One of the most spectacular valleys in the Cordillera Blanca containing mostly difficult routes on a handful of 6000m peaks. Artesonraju is the easiest peak in the area, with a stellar D route up the southwest face. After that, expect to step up the difficulty considerably on mountains like the Pyramide and Huandoy Norte.
A gruelling three hour taxi ride will get you from Huaraz to the caretakers hut at Laguna Paron (~150 soles).

By far the most popular route on the formation, this route offers generally good rock in a spectacular setting. There are some dirty sections and climbers should think of this as more of an alpine route than a Yosemite style free route. It also has several pitches where protection is sparse and poor but this is generally on easier terrain. Traditionally the route receives a rating of 5.11c however many climbers including this poster believe the grade to be much lower.Pitch 1: 30m 5.8 Climb up...[more] Browse More Classics in International
