Touching the Void

The peaks above Laguna Sarapacocha, the scene of the Touching the Void drama. From left to right, the peaks are Rasac, Yerupaja Sur, Siula Grande, and Sarapo. The Simpson/Yates accident(s) took place on the ridge and face to the left of the summit of Siula. Photo from the minor high point Cerro Gran Vista, by Howie Silleck, July 5, 2006.

great scene!

... from an unusual spot that we did not touch on our 1994 Huayhuash trip. Each of your Huayhuash pictures is outstanding. But may I correct you that the left mountain is Rasac and the next one is Yerupaja sur (6515m)

Re: great scene!

Thank you very much Mathias - I've made the changes. By the way, I saw your photos in the
Climbs and Treks in the Cordillera Huayhuash book (actually, I recognized it from Summitpost!) - congratulations on getting it published!
