Artesonraju is a magnificent snow and ice piramid. The climb is demanding but not too difficult on the south face (50-60 degree slope). We left camp one at 0:30 and reached the summit at 7:30, descent is by rappelling (two 60 m ropes are required!), we were back at C1 at 11:30 and continued down to the more confortable base camp on the morain, reached at 16:00. Cloudless day with some wind and intense cold.
