Chachani Trip Report (#11561)

We attempted to climb Nevado Chachani together with my peruvian guide Juan Carlos from Arequipa. We had very bad luck due to a rainy season. First day we stayed overnight freezing in sleeping bags in a small rocky plateau at 5200 mts. Second day we woke up at 3 am and moved up rocky slopes in deep snow and clouds. We reached a saddle between lower eastern summits at 5600 mts and were forced to descent because further ascent would be too risky due to a very bad visibility. It is a challenge for future. I will come back some day.
