NE ridge of Huascarán Sur
... from low on the glacier of Chopicalqui.

The actual summit isn't visible. It's further back and to the left.

4 July 2011.

Thanks :-)

I took plenty of pictures of this ridge from various viewpoints on Chopicalqui. Sometimes it looks quite benign, but this one captures it better. Very difficult, and far beyond my capabilities!

The good news is that, once you reach what appears to be the end of the ridge as you see it here, you're close to the normal route and the last few hours to the summit are easy.
