Sancayuni West Face. Look up the Río Chekapa lobe of the Linco Valley and you will see Sancayuni (c. 5400 meters, 17,717 feet) with a west face half hanging glacier and half rock. On a Sunday last summer, Dave Bishop, Frank Zafran and I did the hanging glacier, a good line, direct but easy. Uncertain of whether the north or south peak was the higher, we selected the north. Of course the south was higher, by a couple of meters. On the same day, Len and Mireille Marks repeated my south ridge of Ventanani.
