2009/2010 Revised Edition
Finalist at the 2003 Banff Mountain Book Festival
Classic Climbs of the Cordillera Blanca is, by far, the most beautiful and comprehensive book yet produced about Peru's, and South America's, most famous mountain range.
Revised Edition includes:
Updated information and prices on: Transportation, Hotels, Restaurants, porters, burros, cooks, guides costs, Huascaran National Park, rescue information, hospitals, and logistical information
- New photos
- New route information on Alpamayo, Huandoy Sur, Yanapaccha, Vallunaraju and Ocshapalca
- New map changes for the Llanganuco and Llaca valleys
With 182 spectacular color images, including 16 panoramas, and detailed descriptions, author Brad Johnson leads us to the best that the Cordillera Blanca has to offer. Also included are 12 three-dimensional maps, using a cartographic technique never before presented in a climbing guidebook. Johnson's savvy travel tips and colorful anecdotes support the conventional wisdom that nowhere else are high-altitude climbs so enjoyable, accessible and inexpensive.
Here, for the first time, is all the information you need about the Cordillera Blanca under one cover.
Foreword by Adrian Burgess, 2nd ascent of the Pergot Route, Huascaran Norte, Peru.
