      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

[TR] Cordillera Blanca - Various 07/10/2018

Recommended Posts

Trip: Cordillera Blanca - Various

Trip Date: 07/10/2018

Trip Report:

I had a great two week trip to the Cordillera Blanca from 6/29-7/13.  I planned this trip intending to use it as a recon to aid in planning future trips.  I was able to take detailed notes on logistics and make many great contacts in the area.  We spent time in the Ishinca Valley climbing Urus Este and Ishinca, and attempting Tocllaraju.  This trip was supported by the American Alpine Club's Live Your Dream Grant - thanks. I wrote up a few short trip reports, linked below:

Urus Este


Tocllaraju attempt

Gear Notes:
Cheap pickets are available in Huaraz. Bring everything else. There are some rentals of old-school gear available if you forget anything.

Approach Notes:
Burros are cheap - make them haul your shit!
