|That'a great that you got to go back with both kids. Kessler is 11 already, wow! Seems like just a few years ago that you had your big adventure with the eruption on Ubinas!|

|We (my kids Kessler (age 11) and Shaylee (age 9)) and I climbed on these peaks for acclimatization. We were with a guide on this trip since I went to Peru with just the kids and I. |
We walked in some snow, but the weather was pretty good. The big volcanoes were all covered with clouds though. Shaylee and Nicholas saw three condors, Kessler and I one.

|Supposedly a rest day in Chivay after 3 nights on Mismi, but this seemed like a good idea as more acclimatisation for Hualca Hualca. Initially we headed for Huarancate but settled on Chucura when we saw the deep snow and remembered the concept of a rest day!|

|Before heading out, I had little information about the area and Nevado Chucura, but, despite its 1:100 000 scale, the Peruvian IGN topo map had served me well before. I asked around in Arequipa, and learned that it would be easy to climb, so I just went for it.|
After climbing Nevado Huarancante, I made my way to Nevado Chucura over Pt 5310 and along the east ridge.
From the summit, I continued for a short while along the NW ridge to the next small outcrop, to verify that it was indeed lower. After that I hiked down to the road in Quebrada Chucura.
