First off, I have done relatively extensive research, but would like other basic opinions on this.
I will have about 3-4 weeks in Peru to do some climbing. I will be solo and have intentions of climbing that way, unless a change of heart comes from other recommendations.
I am looking at doing Pisco and Chopicalqui. Without being horribly experienced, does this, at first glance, seem unreasonable to you?
Please give first impressions and thoughts on the topic.
I will be travelling with only my 80 liter pack, so am hoping to find a climbing pack there.
I will have 1 55cm straight mountaineeering ax, crampons, and mountaineering boots.
Experienced information about the temperature, equipment, difficulty, etc. is very appreciated.
Also, I am in NO WAY set on those peaks. Please recommend anything. I just want to get...up there.
I can't answer any of your questions, but your post reminded me of this Pisco trip report (not mine, obviously). I don't mean to imply you're anything like the author; I just find the report to be an entertaining read, and maybe there's a bit of useful information in it.
