      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: huaraz peru part 6 -


Date: 2/12/2008


Trip Report:

left huaraz , the other day to go climb 2 , 5000m easy rock peaks i had seen from valluna; i took a cab to go to ishinca valley but bailed after 10 minutes when the price changed!! i just took to the hills in the general direction...i left in shorts, with gloves,paclite jacket and camera. just 3-4 hours in the sun.after an agonising 6hours i finally got to the first summit.srambling 101. from there i eyed 2 more along a ridge. after clearing a few steps i got to the second one. a snow capped 5200m. the third was more challenging. vertical chimney to the summit. that day i was not feeling well and it took a lot of effert to get there. just plain awfull. i was panting like a first weeker ar altitude..wtf??. 10 hrs later i was back in huaraz. missed the hard rain by 3drops!!!
