Huancapeti, from central to southwest summit, seen from the northwest

I believe that the main summit of Cerro Huancapeti is the southwest one, on the far right.

I had just descended from the central summit, the one just right of center. In hindsight, that was not the best route to descend. It would have been a lot safer and easier to go back where I had come from, which is from the left.

At this point, there wasn't enough daylight to even try getting up to the southwest summit, but it doesn't look easy either. I was exploring alone, with only a light daypack. If I ever happen to go there again, I would prefer to have a rope and a partner ...
