artesonraju, artesonraju paramount
Artesonraju1342 is a mountain peak located in the Cordillera Blanca mountain range in the Peruvian Andes Its summit has an elevation of 6,025 metres 19,767 ft1 or 5,999 metres 19,682 ft according to the IGN-Peru map3 It is one of many prominent peaks located within the boundaries of Peru's Huascarán National Park4 Artesonraju has two distinguished climbing routes; however due to their difficulties, Artesonraju is seldom successfully climbed in comparison to other well known mountains in the Cordillera Blanca

It has been suggested that Artesonraju is the mountain depicted in the live-action Paramount Pictures logo, its summit ringed with 22 stars5


There is no easy route to the summit of Artesonraju, with all climbing routes rated at least D difficile/difficult according to the International French Adjectival System

The primary climbing route is the North Ridge Route, rated D This route runs along the north ridge from the Santa Cruz ravine and it was the route used in 1932 by Erwin Hein ed Erwin Schneider of the Deutscher und Österreichischer Alpenverein for the first successful climb6

The standard route up Artesonraju varies year over year due to route condition changes

Another well known climbing route is the Southeast Face Route, rated D The approach begins in the city of Caraz at an altitude of 2,256 metres 7,402 ft, and from there proceeds upward another 2,000 meters along a 32-km dirt road to Lake Parón A path along the lake's north shore brings climbers to the Base Camp at 4,250 metres 13,944 ft It involves a trek from Parón lagoon to the base of the face of the mountain and then a long climb from a camp at 5,000 metres 16,404 ft

This Southeast Face Route is one of the classic Andean climbs, although due to climate change it has become increasingly dangerous and out of condition to climb7 In the event that the route is in condition to be climbed, it demands good ice climbing technique, as it involves climbing at about 50-55 degrees for well over 900 vertical meters, with some pitches at 60 degrees At the end of the dry season a bergschrund can make problematic the last section of the climb The route is rated D and was climbed the first time on the 24 June 1969 by K Schreckenbach, H Saler and K Sussmilch8 A large number of accidents have happened descending the Southeast Ridge Route, primarily due to the failure of snow anchors while abseiling

The summit ridge of Artesonraju accessed by the North Ridge Route is well known for its fragility; special care must be taken as there is an unusually high risk of avalanches at the start of the climbing season here For this reason parties must gauge the safety propositions between the North Ridge Route and the Southeast Face Route

A third route, particularly difficult and rated TD+, runs along the south ridge and is very rarely climbed It was climbed the first time on the 24 June 1969 by a Yugoslavian party T Sbrizaj, S Semraj and B Naglic Other routes have been climbed, but very rarely repeated

During August, the windiest month, the peak tends to form a "wind shield", so extreme caution must be taken, especially if temperatures are below zero
