One of the most interesting peacks in the South of Cordillera Blanca, in despite of his limited altitude (5703 m.). From Huaraz to Olleros, in direction of Quebrada Rurec and after up just to the base of the glacier (base camp approximatively at 4900 m. near same small lagunes)or on the glacier down South face (5200 m.)

Thanks to Eros for this description.
