Thanks to Eloy G. Boulton for adding this peak.

The summit of Pico Guirigay is located on a triple boundary point where three venezuelan states meet (Trujillo, Barinas and Mérida). The easiest route starts near the small town of Las Mesitas. To get to Las Mesitas there is a paved road fron Boconó and Niquitao. Near Las Mesitas it is necesary to take a dirt mountain road only able by 4x4 vehicles, which will go up to some 3500 m. The trail to the summit is not easy to find and fog can be encountered. Unless you are a good navigator, the best option is to hire a local guide. There are several beautifull glacial lagoon on the way. Have fun!
