Thanks to CatK for adding this peak.
Yayamari is a mountain in the Cordillera Vilaconta. Much less well known than the highest peak in the range (Ausangate) it is perhaps a more interesting climb that in the early season should avoid an ascent through deep wet snow. It is however very remote and isolated resulting in its low climb rate. It is also heavily glaciated.
The easiest ascent involves climbing the northwest face glacier to the low col and then walking along the ridge to the summit. The only climbing that is needed is up to the low col and that will be highly variable in difficulty or need depending on the state of the ice in the season. On an easy day it will be a straightforward roped up trek to the top. There is a double summit, and depending on the route taken up you might find yourself with a further 100m descent and a 105m ascent to get to the correct peak!
