Cordillera Vilcanota, south of Campa pass (5000m+)
|[ Sizes: Orig | Med | Small | Thumb ]|
This is a foresummit NNE of Campa. The main summit (5500m+) lies well over a kilometer further back.
Looking at the contours, I think it wouldn't be difficult to climb Campa directly from the pass, crossing this foresummit, but that's not the most obvious route to the main summit. First of all there is no water on the pass, so you would have to set up camp to the west or to the east anyway.
The normal route to Campa comes from the northwest, with the last part from the north, and this is the obvious choice when camping west. Alternatively, coming from the east, judging by the contours it would be easier to head directly for a saddle on the ridge south of this foresummit and follow the ridge from there.
