The twin peaks of Chacraraju West and East offer some of the craziest snow runnel climbing in a mountain range famous for them. Its very name, 'chakra', means 'plowed field'. Most of the obvious lines have been explored, though many only have come to the summit ridge, without the FA party tagging the actual summit. Steep, dangerous and committing, there are no easy routes to the top, and it has sometimes been called the most challenging 6,000m peak in the Andes.
