Actully, after a closer look I must re-vote and give the page 4 stars. The photos are awesome. I was schedualed to travel to Peru in early July to do some climbing but my wife and I are expecting a baby at around the same time. I decided that I should stay close to home. Maybe next year.



Great Page!!!

According to John Biggar, Tocllaraju is about 5980 meters in elevation, based on satellite topography data.

Thanks for pointing this out. I've looked into this, and considering that Biggar is one of the experts when it comes to peak elevations in the Andes, I've changed the elevation on the page from its previous value of 6034 down to 5980 m. I've now climbed one 6000-er less ;-).

Frankly, I think it would be a good thing if there were a new scientific expedition to the Cordillera Blanca to accurately measure all the main summits. The recent SRTM data are quite useful to detect significant errors (or deviations, if you will) from the measurements made in the first half of the previous century, but SRTM data are generally not good enough to give an accurate elevation for pointy summits. That said, if the SRTM data point to 5980 m, I agree with Biggar that it's unlikely that the actual summit lies above 6000 m, let alone 34 m higher.
