At the moment I'm in the early stages of preparing for an extended trip to Peru, from May to August 2011. My itinerary isn't fixed yet. I'm considering starting in the south, around Arequipa and Cuzco, for acclimatization and the first few climbs, and head to Huaraz after that.
Near Cuzco I would like to climb Ausangate, and in the Cordillera Blanca of course Huascaran, but as I have plenty of time, I hope to climb many, many more, especially in the Cordillera Blanca.
I'm dreaming about Yerupaja too, but I'm afraid that that one is beyond my capabilities, unless conditions are really, really favorable.
Since 4 months is a long time, I just might pop over the border to Chile, Bolivia or Ecuador at some point, if only to get around visa restrictions. Besides, I have some unfinished business on Chimborazo and on Sajama.
Drop me a line if you plan to be in the neighborhood, maybe we can climb something together!
