Artesonraju is a magnificent pyramid. From the north it is the "Paramount Peak" with just the circle of stars missing. The north ridge is about AD+ and accessible from Quebrada Santa Cruz. The southeast face is an immaculate 50 degree ice wall, D. Access to this face is from the Paron valley. The summit ridge is exposed and features fragile cornices. There is some risk of slab avalanches early in the season. The peak is getting more and more popular.
