I'm going to be in Huaraz, Peru from mid July and four/five weeks on. I'm looking for a climbingpartner(s) to do climbs in the PD-D range. I have been rock climbing the last 10 years, and ice/alpine climbing the last 3 years. Haven't done that extremly much on high altitude, but feel very comfortable when I've been there. I've never used a guide, only climbed with friends.
The plan is to get well acclimatized on easier peaks and/or hikes. Then find some good beta for more demanding peaks. I would like to stay away from the biggest crowds. I'll bring a tent, stove, rope, guide book (B Johnson) and of course personal gear.
I'm fairly fit physically aswell as mentaly. Like alpine starts and long days. Besides that, I work as a chef, so good food is essencial, even at base camp!
Send me an e-mail if your are interessted.
