Thanks to Eloy G. Boulton for adding this peak.

Piedras Blancas is the highest peak of Sierra de La Culata, also known as Sierra del Norte of the venezuelan Andes. It is a popular climbing destination of venezuelan mountaineers and hikers. There is a cartographical assembly on its summit. To access Piedras Blancas there are two main routes: 1.- From Valle de Mifafí, 2.- From La Toma, very near the town of Mucuchíes. The one day hike to the base of the mountain is a beautiful experience. It is wise to hire a local guide.
