Sunset from Campo Uno on Huascarán
|[ Sizes: Orig | Large | Med | Small | Thumb ]|
The sun is setting behind the Cordillera Negra, the smaller sister of the Cordillera Blanca. No glaciers on the Cordillera Negra, but still there are a few peaks over 5000m.
As glacier camps go, Campo Uno on Huascaran is not a bad place. It's really big, so you don't have to camp exactly where other climbers have camped before. Easy to find a clean spot. Sure, it gets cold at night, but what do you expect at 5300m? And the views are outstanding!
