      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!

Maps/Books for Cordillera Blanca?

Recommended Posts

Can anyone recommend a good climbing guidebook and topo maps for the Cordillera Blanca in Peru? I have seen some of the 3a/3b/3c series maps (like, Swiss or something) but they are $20 each out of the map shop in Seattle- I'm hoping they might be cheaper or have local equivalents when I get down to Huaraz...


Has anyone experience with the new regulations involving mandatory local guides for climbers in Parque Nacional Huascaran and elsewhere in the Blanca? Thanks for any info/recommendations!

Buy the Brad Johnson guidebook, Climbing in the Cordillera Blanca


I believe the maps you saw are the Austrian Alpine club (OeAv). I paid ~$20 at the clubhouse for them last year, you won't find them much cheaper. They are an old datum.
