Yanapacca is situated in the Llanganuco Valley adjacent to Pisco, but is much less well known and frequented by climbers.

It is a moderately difficult climb with some steep sections and is not suitable for first time climbers, but an ideal peak for experienced climbers or novice climbers who have received instruction and are looking to extend their climbing level. Due to its slightly smaller stature it is also an excellent acclimitisation mountain for people looking to climb 6000m+ peaks in the area.

Day 1: Drive from Huaraz to Cebollapampa 3850m, passing by the famous twins lakes of Llanganuco and then continue up to a hairpin bend in the road called the “Curva” at 4680m. From here we hike 3 to 3 ½ hours to Yanapaccha Morraine Camp (5000m).

Day 2: The initial ascent on to the glacier is usually a short steep ice climb followed by a more gentle traverse of the glacier. We negotiate crevasse fields to arrive at the west face of Yanapaccha which we climb to the summit. The last 200m to reach the summit is steep (c.65 deg). Upon reaching the summit you will have time to enjoy the incredible views of the surrounding peaks before making the descent. About 3 to 4 rappels are usually required during the descent. Return back to the Morraine Camp & then follow the same path back to the road where our private vehicle will be waiting to return us to Huaraz (10 to 11 hours for the day).

Day 3 (Optional): Stay for a relaxing extra day and either visit the beautiful Laguna 69 or descend on a good path to camp a night near the famous Llanganuco Lakes before returning to Huaraz,
