Pomerape is a stratovolcano lying on the border of Chile and Bolivia. It is part of the Nevados de Payachata complex of volcanoes together with Parinacota Volcano to the south. It is of Pleistocene age.

Climbing the volcano is alpine AD grade, sometimes on 50+ degree snow/rubble slope. A camp can be established at 5,300m at the saddle between Parinacota and Pomerape. Depending on the season, the main difficulty can be penitentes which make the ascent physically difficult or impossible.
