Huandoy is the second highest mountain in the Cordillera Blanca, an honor that it shares with Huantsan. Huandoy's fabulous summit crest holds four distinct 6,000 meter summits (Huandoy Norte, Huandoy Oeste, Huandoy Sur, and Chacraraju) arcing round a high glacier plateau. Its south face, a steep 3,000 foot wall of rock and ice, was not successfully climbed until 1976 despite numerous attempts.
