|Organizing gear for the climb.|
This was my third time to Huaraz and I was hoping to be on the every other year plan, but last winter in Antarctica messed that up. This year I was leading a group of students from the University of Montana on the Santa Cruz Trek and a six-day mountaineering course on an 18,000 foot mountain called Yanapaqcha.

|One of the best things about mountaineering in Peru is that it is cheap and easy to get donkeys to carry your gear!|
