Climbs in Quebrada Ulta, 1974. My wife Jennifer, Chip Morgan, Rick Wilcox and I climbed in the Quebrada Ulta for about ten days. On July 2, 1974 we climbed P 5375 (17,634 feet), the highest point between the Nevado Ulta and the Punta Shilla (incorrectly marked on the Austrian map as the Pasaje de Ulta). On July 4 we climbed P 5490 (18,012 feet), the southernmost of the Contrahierbas group. Later Rick, Chip and I climbed Tullparaju, which lies above the lower end of the quebrada, opposite Huascarán.
