This site gives a description of an expedition to the Cordillera Blanca of Peru that I took part in during July and August 2003. I have attempted to provide information that my be of some use to others planning trips to this area in the future. I have provided internet links where possible or known and also prices where known. Of course these were the prices at the time of our trip and may have changed by the time you read this! Sometimes prices are given in Sols and sometimes in US Dollars.

Our intention on this expedition was to climb several peaks by mainly easy routes. We unfortunately suffered from some illness, minor injury and poor conditions which limited what we could achieve but a good time was had by all.
