I`ll be arriving in Lima tomorrow on my way to the Cordillera Blanca. Can anyone recommend a climbing shop in town. I`m looking for Brad Johnson`s guidebook, Classic climbs in the CB. I`ve looked all over La Paz the last few weeks and have had no luck in locating it.
Lima has a couple of climbing shops but you will not find Brad Johnson's book there. I saw it in many climbing stores in Huaraz (price between $32 and $37). You will have better luck buying it in Huaraz. Good Luck.
You will be able to get it easily in Huaraz. Last year I bought a copy from the hotel that I was staying at. I bought it from the hotel because Brad was also staying there and autographed it for me. The price was about the same as what has been quoted, which is the same as Amazon was charging.
