Description

Huascarán Sur is the highest mountain in Peru, and the highest mountain in the Cordillera Blanca range in the western Andes. It is part of (and the highest peak of) the Huascarán massif at 6,768m, with the other notable peak on the massif being Chopicalqui (6,354m). It is typically climbed starting from the local village of Musho through to the col (known as Garganta, at 6,010m) separating Huascarán Sur's north and south peaks (of which the south is the true summit, being 91m higher than the less frequently climbed north peak).
