Huascarán Norte from Huascarán Sur

I was a bit unlucky to see the clouds move in, literally minutes before reaching the summit of Sur. I quickly snapped this photo before it was too late to see it.

A few minutes later, on the summit, I had no views at all. Pity. I only spent a minute or two before heading back down - but as it was already late, I would have done the same, even if visibility had been perfect. Fortunately, on the descent, a few minutes below the summit the clouds opened up once more.

8 August 2011.
