P 5680 and Campa I, Cordillera Vilcanota. The Deutscher Alpenverein excursion took sixteen members into the range for ten days. Base Camp was below the Campa Pass. Unbelievably we had four days of bad weather. In snow and fog ten of us, Norbert Gartmaier, Volker Schwarz, Brigitte Jaenisch, Winfried Schönhuber, Hellmuth Baur, Fritz Vogel, Adolf Kiesel, Werner Hettwer, Philipp Braun and I, ascended Campa I (17,871 feet) on July 4. On the 6th Brigitte Jaenisch, Schwarz and I made the first ascent of P 5680 (18,635 feet) on the long east ridge of Mariposa.
