Climbed it on a weird weather day on a weird weather season. Not a single sign of any other people. For an "easy" route, I was surprised to find challenging route finding and relatively steep snow (50ish degrees). Very good day overall though!

A nice ascent, Quebrada Cayesh is a lonely and wild place.

Date Climbed: Jun 15, 2011


I can´t say I reached the real summit though I got really close. I got the the top of the "snow" summit but as I stood there, it seemed like the rock outcrop 200m away was slightly higher (by 3 or 5 meters). To reach it however was more technical that I had the equipment for at the time.

Date Climbed: Jun 17, 2011


Early in the morning, it was drizzling. I abandoned the planned early start. Around eight or so I headed out anyway, figuring I could always return if things got too bad.
By the time I got to the glacier, things started to improve. I could still see the old trails, so small was the total amount of new snow. The glacier was easy going, but the summit was very small and exposed. I carefully worked my way to what seemed the highest point, but as it appeared corniced, I didn´t dare to stand on top of it with both feet, just one.

Maparraju is a good mountain for the acclimatisation process, it is in a valley not very frequented by the mountain climbers and has very good views of many snow-covered very great among them the mitico cayesh

most of our group made it to the top successfully. Fairly busy mountain. Unfortunately too foggy for many views. Overall fairly straightforward snow climb with a few crevasses to cross.

Climbed with David Greenhouse during our accimatization period in the Quilcayhuanca Valley. Easy route, but with a misleadingly long approach over slabs and scree. I felt really bad on the climb, which was probably due to a pre-existing intestinal illness that became apparent on our return from the summit. After resting for 2 days in base camp, we hiked up to moraine camp for San Juan, but descended the following day, since we could find no way to pass the ice cliff low on the route and were thus unable to access the NW ridge.
