Heading to the Llaca Boulders
Quebrada Llaca is the leftmost of four obvious quebradas ("gaps" or "canyons" in Spanish) in the Cordillera Blanca as seen from the city of Huaraz. It is a high altitude climbing area in Huascarán National Park which holds potential for some of the best bouldering in the Huaraz area. It is also home to multi-pitch sport routes including "Misión Lunática" and is the point of access to peaks such as Ranrapalca and Ocshapalca.
The rock is granite, and in the dry season (May-September) the valley gets sun for most of the day.
From Huaraz: The easiest way to reach Llaca is to catch a taxi asking if they go to "Llaca". The ride should cost anywhere between 80 and 100 soles (US $25-$33). Entrance into Huascarán National Park costs 5 soles (US $1.50) for a day, or if you plan to camp 65 soles (US $22) for a National Park pass good for a month.
Once you enter the quebrada, you will wind up the road until you cross a river. At the junction of the road and river sits the Llaca Boulders.
