Quitaraju Climbing 6025m

Best months: May to september
Time required: 5 days Climbing
Grade: Technical / Difficult

Quitaraju is a really nice mountain with great views from its south face, taking in the Alpamayo, Artesonrajo, Huascaran(s) and Chopicalqui peaks. The easiest route is via the west ridge, graded AD, but very long sustained and steep in places. The north face is really nice, being graded D, 700m, inclination of about 55° degrees. Different variants have different grades, so a tougher climber could find some 60-70 degree climbs by traversing some 50m left or right from the arete in the upper part of the face.
