Situated above the Marian and Cachipampa village to the NE of Huaraz, this small, deep and narrow valley is surrounded by impressive summits. The easiest and most popular, with the exception of Rima-Rima (5203m), is Vallunaraju (5686m). as for Oshapalca, it is famous for its difficult rock climbing. The first ascent of this 5885m summit was in 1978, and it is already a classic among the difficult rock climbing of the cordillera. The impressive NW slope of Ramrapalca (6162m) towers above the whole amphitheatre of the LLaca valley, and it is still almost untouched. One very good refuge, waiting for you, makes this valley an obvious centre for climbers, trekkers and even tourists. It is also accessible by car.

Vallunaraju 5686m, 5600m.

Grade: AD-
Time: 2-3 days roundtrip from Huaraz
The southwest face of Vallunaraju is an enjoyable, moderately easy mountaineering adventure. The approach is the hardest part. The climb is deep snow rewarding and great views. Descent the same route.

Ocshapalca 5881m

SOUTH FACE (American Route Direct)
Grade: ED.

Descent: If you succeeded in reaching the summit ridge, snow in the summit cornice may (or may not) be solid enough to anchor the first rappel back down the face. V-threads and ice screws will be your main source of anchors for the remaining 12 or so rappels

This mountain is getting more attention every year for the fantastic steep ice climbing the south face offers. There are many lines to climb. The American route is rather long, exciting and cold. Be prepared to bivouac up high, or rappel in the dark, if you are not fast enough for a one-day ascent.
