Cardenillo or Cardenalillo, as it is also named, is one of the seven peaks that where first summited by the Venezuelan engineer, naturalist and explorer Alfredo Jahn, between 1910 and 1911.
It is located at the valley of Raiz de Agua in the state of Mérida. The normal approximation walk begins at Raiz de Agua guard house, from which there is a 4 hours walk to a good base camp site. There is water all along the beautiful trail that leads to BC. From base camp it is usually a complete day to the top and back to BC. From the creek at the bottom of the valley there is no trail to the top, so it is necessary a good map and interpretation of the surroundings. The wonderful view from the summit well pays the effort. It will be necessary to go through two or three easy basic rock climb passes
NOTE: Trip reports were previously called "Summit Logs" - same feature, new name
