"Classic Climbs of the Cordillera Blanca" is, by far, the most beautiful and comprehensive mountaineering guidebook yet produced about Peru's - and South America's - most famous mountain range.
This is the 2009/2010 revised edition (first published in 2003).
This 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; and, new map changes for the Llanganuco and Llaca valleys.
With 182 spectacular colour 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 colourful 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.
