Copa

PERU | Sunday, 30 Aug 2009 | Views [1232] | Comments [3]

There was really only one reason I wanted to climb Copa and that was because there is a hot spring in Marcara, the access town.  Oh yeah, one other reason was because it probably has the most beautiful ski descent in all of the Blanca, especially with ... Read more >

Chimborazo

ECUADOR | Monday, 24 Aug 2009 | Views [311] | Comments [1]

Chimborazo was great.  It was pretty chilly but everything went well.  I probably would have been better off with a blindfold on, atleast my face would have been warmer.  I had to clear my goggles about every ten steps but it was a blast.  My brain ... Read more >

Yanapaccha in 23 Hours!

PERU | Monday, 11 Aug 2008 | Views [403]

We had 2 Brazilian girls join us on this one while thier boyfriends tried another climb.  All went well but slow to the summit.  The return ticket was a different story.  Luke skied the peak while I "guided" the girls down.  They had only been ... Read more >

Ranrapalca

PERU | Wednesday, 30 Jul 2008 | Views [397] | Comments [2]

Um, yeah.  High hopes.  Its good to set your goals high, but Ranrapalca became a very far fetched dream after a few days in the Ishinca.  6000 M is a little out of the question right now for this climbing team, but give it a few weeks, and we´ll keep ... Read more >


Ishinca

PERU | Wednesday, 30 Jul 2008 | Views [673] | Comments [2]

Two days of crying at BC because of my repeated failed attempt on Tocllaraju, we headed to climb Ishinca.  This being another extremely dificult "high altitude" mountain, we left early and took the slow and heavy approach as opposed to light ... Read more >


Tocllaraju

PERU | Wednesday, 30 Jul 2008 | Views [390]

I should have known not to climb with people that I don´t know, who are from a country that has nothing but a moderate incline with a peak elevation of 200m.  Since Nick needed a couple days of acclimitization at BC, I hitched up with a couple of Brits ... Read more >


Urus Este

PERU | Wednesday, 30 Jul 2008 | Views [354]

Urus is a mountain that I climbed last year and didn´t know it, but would become more and more familiar with the route over the two weeks we spent in the Ishinca valley.  Round one on Urus was a failed attempt as Nick was not properly acclimitized and ... Read more >

Nasty nasty chicken.  Montezuma´s revenge, Delhi Belly, or the Andean Ache...after about five days of feeling a little rough my stomach came around and I headed to climb Pisco.  It is a beautiful montain just outside of Yungay.  Everything went really ... Read more >
