Ascent Trip Report

Date t.b.c

We thoroughly enjoyed Cantillana then we went south to Laguna del Laja park to attempt Velluda. We got to 3200 m but were thwarted by the last 300m of steep hideously crumbly ascent, accessed across a difficult bergshrund under a rock gulley. We think a winter or at least earlier ascent might enable access via a snow gulley. Two or three day back pack with easy glacier.
