I doubt this pinnacle has ever been climbed.


Interesting climbing in a rock garden near where a pre-inca civilization built aqueducts. This is a very beautiful place with rock that has never been climbed. No bolts, aggregate rock that is crumbly in some places, good spots for easy top roping but also some interesting pinnacles. Rainy season is during the Peruvian summer (Dec-March), but if it is not raining the weather is pleasant.

The crux is about 15 ft from the ground where the holds fade and the rock pushes you off. Challenging nubs and almost overhanging make this an interesting challenge. Watch out for crumbling holds if you get off route!...[more]   Browse More Classics in International
