Jangyaraju, from the Southeast. After an unsuccessful attempt on the west ridge of Huandoy Oeste by Trev Briggs, Les Brown, George Jackson and me, in early July Brown and Briggs climbed Janyaraju from the Quebrada Llaca from the southeast via the col between Jangyaraju and Vallunaraju. The difficulties of the ascent necessitated a descent to the southwest and a bivouac on the glacier.
