Climbing in the Cordillera Huayhuash

Postby bledl » Fri Jun 17, 2011 8:13 am

Hey folks!

As I am planning future climbing trips I do a little research about possible climbs in the Huayhuash. I know about Yerupaja, Jirishinca, Rasac and Diablo Mudo. But what about all those interesting looking but less known peaks like Puscanturpa, Sapo or Trapecio? I would appreciate it if anyone having beta on snow/ice/mixed climbs or possible lines in the range just send me a quick answer.

Muchas gracias & have fun!

The jeremy frimer guide to the huayhuash willset you up just fine. there's a much older but still useful one from the '60's as well. check chessler books, or borrow them from the AAC library

Thanx, guys!

But good to see, there is not too much climbing in the area. Going to Alpamayo last year was kind of shocking.
