Jatunmontepuncu summit view
My feet are dangling down the steep NE ridge from the small summit of Jatunmontepuncu, aka Huapi. The lower N summit is hardly noticeable against the massive bulk of nearby Nevado Pucaranra.

19 June 2011.

Oh yeah, on top of a mountain, and then with these views, that's the best place to be!

What a view... LOVE the boots and crampons. Puts everything in perspective - the ascent, and the forthcoming descent.

Thanks for sharing,

Glad you like it, but perhaps you got the wrong impression here. I was only looking in this direction, admiring these two big mountains, but I came from the other side, which is much easier. And after enjoying the view, I would turn around and go back the same way, at least for a few hundred meters.

As to the ridge below my boots, if I had carried a rope and would have been with a partner, it would have been an option, but without either it would be suicide!
Cheers, Rob

Absolutely, do come to the Andes! Well, not everbody perhaps, that might make it too crowded.
Not much chance for that on this summit though; for although it's a fine acclimatization climb, it's visited a whole lot less than the likes of Urus, Ishinca or Pisco.
