Departamento de Cusco, Peru
A pass or not a pass? We decided that this climb up a green valley and zigzagging over a ridge just about qualified for inclusion on this list. From the south the climb is short and easy enough, though it comes on the back of a tiring few days from Arcata. Climbing the pass from the other direction would be much harder – over 1,300m from the pleasant little town of Quiñota. The surface on the south side is fine, but there are some steep sections on a bad surface on the north side in the vicinity of Mina Anabi.
