Alpamayo Trip Report (#60)

  • Signed By: Jim St. Jean
  • Date submitted: September 24, 2003

Climbed Italian/Ferrari route (true Ferrari out of condition, this is next runnel to the left almost identical). Menacing ice towers near summit, route in great shape, some fixed anchors, summitted in clouds. Left 2 ropes and added a fixed screw on descent. Summitted exactly 2 weeks before large avalanche killed 8. Local guide confirmed French direct out of condition this season, our route seemed only one on SW face in reasonable shape.
