Nevado Cuyoc, La Face B, New Route, Previously Unreported. On August 18, 1999, Jérôme Blanc-Gras and Sébastien Laurent climbed a 500-meter new route that was primarily mixed (up to M5). Their route tops out on a rocky tower just right of the summit, and parallels the normal route on this 5500-meter peak. The peak is close to Laguna Viconga, in the southeastern part of the Huayhuash.
