Purísima. Our expedition to the Ruri Chinchey was plagued by bad weather. We failed to climb objectives at the head of the valley. Finally on July 13, the first day of really good weather in several weeks, Hugh Thompson, Harry Eldridge, Eric White and Glicerio Henostroza made the second ascent of Purísima, of which Glicerio and Eustaquio Henostroza, Rómulo Aranda and I had made the first ascent in 1968.
