Illampu Area

There is a lot of good climbing to be had on the peaks in this area.  Illampu and Pico del Norte have the longest, mainly snow and ice climbs, with some of the lower mountains having fantastic rock, particularly PK 24 and Emma Maria.

The southern aspects of Illampu, Schulze and Yacuma are accessed via Laguna Glacier, the western aspect of Illampu via Aguas Caleintes and the eastern aspect via Cocoyo.
