Cordillera Vilcanota, Various Ascents, Previously Unreported. In July, 1999, a seven-member British team led by Andy Owen made several ascents, some perhaps new, from a base camp near Laguna Saranaro in the seldom-visited southeastern Vilcanota. Ascents included the Southeast Ridge of Nevado Jatunano Punta (5812m) via Cerro Soranano Snowpeak (5540m), the southern slopes to Southeast Ridge of Navado Apucucho (5560m), and the Southwest Ridge of Nevado Japu Punta (5852m).
