Excellent Christmas morning present. Route, context, and detail well woven together. Thank you again.
Your welcome Don, thanks for the comment. I hope you are having a great Christmas day and can put your "present" to good use soon. Vic
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.
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
Congratulations! Good pictures and information.
It was about time to include this grate Andean summit on SP...
Ampato is one of my objectives when i will visit the Arequipa area
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
Good luck next time Vic!...Probably the good dry weather stands until october in this area...
Maybe i will visit the area next october...
"vist the area next October..." Chile or Arequipa? Keep in touch if you are coming to Arequipa. Vic
