      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!

[TR] La Esfinge and Artesonraju - 7/16/2012

Trip: La Esfinge and Artesonraju -

 

Date: 7/16/2012

 

Trip Report:

My wife and I spent a bunch of time teaching, living and climbing in the Cordillera Blanca, Peru. Here's a link to our last blog entry from our time there. I'd encourage anyone interested in more than just the climbing down there to read the entire entry – others interested in just our climbs on La Esfinge and Artesonraju, scroll down the bottom of the blog.

Holy crap! That is some fine looking climbing. Nice work Ben, I can't believe how much stellar climbing you guys have packed in these past few months.

Wow! Great climbing. The Sphinx looks great! I had the opportunity to work in the Cordillera Blancas earlier this summer and had a blast climbing, exploring, and researching. Seeing your pictures brings back plenty of memories!

Wow! You got some beautiful shots there.

 

It's nice to see some shots from up high on Artesonraju. Wayne1112 and I climbed the peak back in 1997. Looks like you might have had better snow than we did - unconsolidated sugar for 90% of the face. Unfortunately I dropped my camera on the way down at about 18K, and watched it bounce for 2000'. Bye-bye summit shots!

 

Thanks for the memories!
