Thanks to M. Havick for adding this peak.

This rock spire is just south of Pico La Concha in the Venezuelan Andes. Both peaks are just north of the Travesia, the trail by the which the highest peaks in Venezuela are accessed. La Conchita is only a short scramble from the Travesia, although the last 50 feet contain low 5th class moves. A belay may be needed depending on your climbing skill and acclimatization.

Sorry, we don't currently have the latitude and longitude of Pico La Conchita in our database. Therefore we can't show this peak on a map.

    This is a good climb. Be careful, as the Travesia is easy to miss and very cloudy days and bad weather are the norm even during the dry season.
