Brad Johnson: Classic Climbs of the Cordillera Blanca (Peru)

Classic Climbs of the Cordillera Blanca

CLASSIC CLIMBS OF THE CORDILLERA BLANCA is, by far, the most beautiful and comprehensive book yet produced about Peru's - and South America's - most famous mountain range.. With 182 spectacular color 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 colorful 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.

The Mountaineers Books: Aconcagua

a climbing guide


Aconcagua-at 22,841 feet, the highest peak in the Western hemisphere-is a paradoxical mountain. The normal route along the Northwest Ridge is a walkup; the South Face is defended by bands of loose rock, ice cliffs, and huge avalanches. While this Argentine peak is easily accessible by the highway between Mendoza and Santiago, high altitude and severe weather pose daunt­ing challenges. Aconcagua: A Climbing Guide, now completely revised and up­dated in its second edition, is key to under­

standing the many faces of this mountain and meeting its unique challenges.


- The only English-language guidebook to Aconcagua

- Details 27 routes, including both the popular and the less-traveled

- Covers three major approaches: Horcones Valley, South Face, and Vacas and Relinchos Vallevs

- Information on equipment, permits and outfitters

- Information about seasons, weather and high altitude health.
