Wadakapiapué-tepui, also spelled Wadakapiapö,[2] Wadakapiapo,[3] Wadaka Piapo or Guadacapiapui,[4] is a tepui of the Eastern Tepuis chain in Bolívar, Venezuela.[1] It has an elevation of around 2,000 metres (6,600 ft). Its tiny tower-like summit has an area of less than 0.01 km2 (0.0039 sq mi), making it the smallest member of the Eastern Tepuis. It lies just west of the much larger Yuruaní-tepui.[1]
