The north face of Huascarán Norte

From near the trailhead to Yanapaccha.

The NE ridge is on the left; the Paragot line leads through the right hand side of the face.

Hi Rob,
many thanks for sharing. On this face there are also another French route running on the left ridge, a Catalana Route and a Swiss route, both running near the middle, (both classed ED sup) and an ED sup route climbed in 1977 by the unforgettable Renato Casarotto - alone - running on the steep wall on the left of the Paragot route.
many cheers

Re: Mighty!

Casarotto climbed this face alone? That's amazing!
