Heading to South America for 6 months solo and looking for partners to get into the mountains with...

I'm mostly geared towards trekking although i'll be taking crampons, axe, and harness, as well as climbing shoes with me to fit in as much as possible.

Most of my skills are in whitewater - i'm a class V boater with plenty of expedition experience throughout New Zealand, the High Sierra's, PNW and British Columbia but this isn't going to be a boating trip for me so i'm shifting gears a bit to trekking and climbing. I've trekked throughout New Zealand, British Columbia, the Yukon and Alaska...its been a year since i've climbed rock but i'm good up to mid 5.10's with some trad experience. I've done a bit of mtn climbing although limited it has included technical mixed climbing...so although not hugely experienced, i'm keen, fit and just need a partner to get out with.

General plans put me in Quito, Ecu in mid-Nov 2011. After a month there i plan to skip down to Patagonia and trek/climb southward for 2 or 3 months. From there i want to head to Boliva and Peru and then back to Ecu...this is just a tentative plan tho and i'm flexible to join up for anything.

Drop me a line if you're happy to add one to your group or are solo and need a partner.

HumbertoIn Arequipa till 21st of Oct


Hi Chris, I'm in Arequipa, Peru for a few more weeks if you are going to be passing thru and want to try some of the local mountains..Chachani, El Misti etc .So far I can really only take off about 3 days because of business constraints but that may change for the better and that would free me up to range a little farther and maybe do some bigger mountains.
I have some experience and crampons and axe here so let me know if this fits your plans. In any case..enjoy your travels!!

I'll be traveling and climbing starting in Columbia and working my way South through Ecuador, Peru, Chile and down to Patagonia. Do you have any specific Mountains you'd like to summit while you are in the Northern Andes? Will you still be in SA May 2012?
