what route in particular? I have not been to the CB since 2014 but have many contacts in Huaraz that could probably answer your question; drop me a line with a few more details and i'll see if i can dig anything up for you

According to several guides in Huaraz, there have been no ascents of Huascaran this year (as of mid-June). Chopicalqui has been climbed but snow is waist-deep near the top. This has been an unusually wet year and the dry season is starting later than usual. Good conditions on lower mountains (Pisco, Yanapaccha, Ishinca, Vallunaraju).

I am in Huaraz now and several teams have claimed to have climbed Huascaran recently. Supposedly conditions are OK, but not great. Still better than last year.
