The approach march to the high camp is rather long therefore it requires of a good physical condition.

 

The first time the Chachacomani, a 6000m high mountain not very well known located to the north of the Royal Mountain Range, was climbed was in 1974 by F. Fritz and G. Buchholtz (Germany) and G. Moeller, D. Moore, I. Paz y G. Sanjinéz (Bolivia).
