SPELLBOUND IN PERU: Alpine Climbing in the Beautiful Cordillera Blanca

A collection of some of the mountains I climbed and had the privilege of seeing during my spellbinding adventure to Peru. All images are originals taken by my first Canon camera! Hope you enjoy and are inspired to get out into the mountains!

Slow and steady up Paria (5720m), a superb climb with really crispy snow and ice conditions and awesome weather. The fabled ‘lost city’ of the Incas, Macchu Pichu. Tauliraju (5830m) up close the night before the summit push. The route we took was along the glacier on the right and then up the steep ridge.

Dawn magic. Chacraraju (6112m) in the background on the way up Pisco (5750). All stands still high up in the abode of snows. Heaven is a breath away. Tauliraju (5830m) in the distance! What a stunning climb this was! Aguja (5888m) frosted with precarious looking cornices on the west face.
