Old times

Nice page. The mountain sure looks different than it did in photos from the 70's. Have you seen Kelsey's book? He has some nice photos from the 70's in it.

Re: Old times

Thanks Scott. Smiley had an old book he was using, might have been Kelsey's. Lots of speed climbs from the 70's and 80's. I didn't see the book, just copies of some of the pages, with hand drawn maps. Vic

Re: It was about time....

Thanks Igor, I was hoping on trying again to climb it but the weather was so rainy in Arequipa we went to Chile. The weather is rainy here as well! We did get 2 small mountains climbed. Vic

Thanks Igor,
"vist the area next October..." Chile or Arequipa? Keep in touch if you are coming to Arequipa. Vic
