Cordillera Blanca, July 2010
Climbing trip to Cordillera Blanca.
We started the trip being 4 people, John, Bill, Tom and me.
The initial plan was to climb Quitaraju, Alpamayo and then maybe Huascaran or another peak.
Finally Tom and me were able to climb Alpamayo. John went back home from the morraine camp. Bill went back to Huaraz to climb Tocllaraju later on.
I got sick, diarrhea, the night before the climb to Quitaraju, so we weren´t able to even attempt it.
But we got an almost perfect climb to the French direct route to Alpamayo, besides the weather that was cloudy and foggy.
Tom and me attempted Huascaran, I was still very weak, so we bailed just before camp 1.
Overall a great trip.
