my first summit on this beatiful mountain was on 9th aug 1994 in a midle of storm (3:32pm), with a bunch of Mexican "cuates" , getting out of it was pretty scaring, couldn't find the stacas for rappeling, finally we made it alive.
last year I came back with Canadian friends (Dave & Paul suda and Cory Richards) were high on the Ferrari and got knocked by ice from other climbers. have started at 00:00 hours (midnight) and there were already some climbers on the wall, try to be the first on the wall to avoid falling ice !it hurts!!
beatiful mountain!!! any info about hotels in Lima or transportation to Huaraz, just drop me an email, I could arrange taxis from Lima airport to any hotel, and just for free!!!
