DescriptionArtesonraju is one of the most famous mountains in the Cordillera Blanca. Its biggest claim to fame is serving as the Paramount Pictures logo. The southeast face (D) has traditionally been the standard route, though it is avalanche prone and has been out of condition for several years now. Ueli Steck got avalanched on twice during a 2014 attempt and did not summit. The north ridge (AD+) is the second most popular route and has been the more reliable option in recent years. It is also possible to approach from the south and climb the east ridge (D).
South facing routes are accessed via the Paron valley. North facing routes are approached via the more popular Santa Cruz valley. See the Quebrada Santa Cruz section for north facing route descriptions.
