The Huayhuash Hikers

Although much of the Cordillera Huayhuash range of Peru has become popular in recent years, its southern spur has been largely ignored, particularly from an eastern approach. The group focused on two main objectives, the first being the east ridge of Quesillo (5,600m) on which, despite several attempts, they were unable, without appropriate rock protection gear, to get higher than 5,100m. They therefore turned their attention to the NE ridge of Carnicero (5,960m) on which they reached 5,270m but realised that further progress was beyond their TD ability.
