Since I have climbed Chachani myself, I know it is difficult to find a lot of information about the mountain. Just a few lines in John Biggar's book and some comments on the internet. So I think provides useful information for people considering climbing Chachani. For this reason: 4 stars.
Thanks for the vote and comments.
August 3rd 2004. Just adopted the page. I already think it is a fine page and I will try to maintain it as good as it has been maintained so far.
Thanks. Since you've climbed this mountain would you be interested in maintaining/improving it? Let me know.
I think you are doing quite well but I don't mind adopting the page if you want to give it away. Regards, Jes
Hi - for those who may have been there in May, just after the wet season, what are snow conditions like on Chachani? Which month is it likely to have sparse cover not requiring the use of crampons and such gear to make the ascent?
At one time, it may have been a good page, but everything concerning access has changed. The current owner is inactive and the page hasn't been updated since 2007.
A few examples of things that need to be fixed:
The getting there information is from 1999. The road to the old standard route is no longer in service and the old standard route has been mostly abandoned. The new standard route is via a new route from the south and the road is new as well.
The When to Climb section is actually pretty inaccurate. January through March are actually the wettest months and probably the least popular time to climb.
I'm creating maps of Peru as I travel around. Here is a link to some of the very basic points-of-interest around Chachani. At present this is only meant to help get your bearings of where things are. All the Best.
