It is located in the Huánuco Region, Bolognesi Province, Pacllón District, and in the Lauricocha Province, Queropalca District, northwest of the lake Ninacocha.[1] It is separated from Rondoy by a col 5,000 metres (16,404 ft) high. It is a mountain very rarely climbed. Base camp can be reached from the village of Chiquian in five days of trek.

The normal route is rated D and can be climbed from Mitococha by the NE ridge, gained by a 45° snow couloir then a short rock pitch followed by the corniced ridge.
