Yanapacha, West Face. It was reported that the three-man team of Caffarena/Kleinberg/Mauriz climbed a possible new route on the west face of Yanapacha (5460m) in the Llanganuco Valley. The route had sections of 80° and a rock pitch V+ that was avoidable; they climbed it on July 24, 1996. It is unclear how this route relates to the 1959 American route on the left side of the face.
