ASCENCION AL HUASCARAN

Huascaran-Sur (6768m), Peru’s highest peak and one of the most imposing summits in the world. It offers a challenging ascent requiring intermediate level alpine skills, and an unusual opportunity for climbers who want to make an ascent to very high altitude. Before to attempt Huascaran people should have trekked 6 days minimum and have climbed a 5000 peak for a good acclimatisation and fitness. Together with Chopicalqui, Huascaran Sur and Norte form the Huascaran massif. Huascaran Sur is the highest mountain in the Cordillera Blanca as well as in whole Peru and consequently quite popular. The south summit is 113 meters higher than its (much less frequented) north-twin. The first ascent to H. South took place in 1932 by a German-Austrian expedition, whereas H. Norte is said to be climbed as early as 1908 by Annie Peck, an American schoolmistress
