I think they're Chopirajus

Ciao Roberto,
when i was getting to Maparaju top there was a lot of fog, so i didn't see nothing, but i think this summits are Chopiraju, just the summits overlooking Maparaju Camp.
Thanks and have a good afternoon.

Re: I think they're Chopirajus

Thanks for clearing it up!

There were plenty of clouds when I was there too, and I still remember well that I couldn't see nearby Cayesh nor Huantsán. I had hoped for the classic view of Cayesh ...
Still, I felt fortunate, because early in the morning it was much worse, and it didn't even look possible to climb. I'm an optimist though, so, when the drizzle had virtually stopped, I went out anyway, hoping it would get better, and got rewarded.

As you can see, the clouds obscure whatever is behind these nearby peaks. That's why I wasn't sure. With Google Earth I figured out that in clear visibility Pucaranra and Chinchey can be seen over Chopiraju from Maparaju, but with these clouds I didn't have that clue.
Ciao, Rob
