Description

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.

Getting There

A gruelling three hour taxi ride will get you from Huaraz to the caretakers hut at Laguna Paron (~150 soles).
