Thanks to Daniele C. Struppa for adding this peak.
This peak is one of the 13 peaks over the 5,000 m (16,400 ft) in the Condoriri group. Base camp is on Laguna Khota which can be reached in a 3-hour hike from Laguna Tuni, the last place where you can take a car. The normal route follows the same approach you would use for Pequeno Alpamayo until the glacier. On the glacier stay on the left of the mountain till you reach a small plateau and then a short rock scramble (5.3) leads you to the top. The climb is usually classified as PD with snow up to 40 degrees.
