      WELCOME TO THE CASCADECLIMBERS.COM FORUMS   02/03/18

      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!

Trip: Cordillera Blanca, Peru - Tocllaraju - NW Ridge (D) (and others)

Trip Date: 07/09/2019

Trip Report:

I've posted a few trip reports on my site for my second trip to Peru's Cordillera Blanca.  This range has many incredible objectives, relatively easy logistics, and is CHEAP compared to high altitude climbing areas elsewhere.  Here's my report from Tocllaraju:

Gear Notes:
Some screws, two ropes, pickets can be bought in Huaraz.

Approach Notes:
Make the donkey carry the good stuff

I've got to admit, seeing your stuff from Peru these last two trips has definitely peaked my interest in climbing there.

Yeah, I think I just changed my next trip from Bolivia to Peru.

I will go back to the Cordillera Blanca again.  Maybe not for my big trip next year, but in the next 5 years for sure.  The ease of access is amazing for such huge, dramatic peaks.  Feel free to contact me with questions on climbing and logistics there, I learned a lot over the last couple of trips!
