Description'Mandarineando' is the name given in Daniel Carrion's 2016 Monodedo guidebook to the area around the big roof on the (looker's) left hump of the main formation at Cojitambo. It was called 'Zone 2' in earlier versions of the guide.
There's a lot more dirt and vegetation around than would be ideal, but there are enough quality climbs at a range of grades and styles to make it worth checking out. (For what it's worth, it looks like the locals have put a lot of work into getting the area as clean as it is now.)
Getting ThereIt's a 10-15 minute approach from a quarry that lies at the end of a dirt road, past the cemetery in town, if you don't go for any of the the heinous bushwhacking options. The best bet is to park near -2.76283, -78.88597, walk north and uphill through the quarry, and then head west and uphill towards -2.76181, -78.88735.
