Pucajirca Oeste c.6005m
Pucajirca Central c.5990m
Pucajirca is a complex mountain peak with many summits in the north of the Cordillera Blanca, a very difficult and rarely climbed peak with several summits, three of which may (or may not!) be over 6000m. Surveys for this area are both vague and outdated and there is a pretty good chance that all the summits are under 6000m.
Pucajirca summits from the summit of Alpamayo to the southwest. From right to left the northern, central and western peaks can all be seen.
