Legendary Japanese mountaineer Yasushi Yamanoi, with Masanobu Noda, has climbed two technically demanding routes in Peru's Cordillera Huayhuash, a first and second ascent. After acclimatizing in the Cordillera Blanca with an ascent of the southwest face of Piramide de Garcilaso (5,885m), the pair travelled quickly by local buses to the village of Cajatambo at the southern end of the Huayhuash. From there they walked up the east side to the unclimbed southeast face of Puscanturpa Este (5,410m). The route was named Qiumplirgun Swerminganta, graded ED3, UIAA VII, M5+ and A1.
