South America, Southern Peru, Nevado Cara Cruz, Cordillera Vilcabamba

Nevado Cara Cruz, Cordillera Vilcabamba. Sue Tatum of Canada and I climbed this peak (17,123 feet) by its east ridge and descended its northwest ridge on May 15, 1970. We were on a short excursion from the pass (Hacienda Chamacaya) on the Cuzco-Limatambo road to Kori on the Machu Picchu railway. This peak is one of the isolated outliers south of the Huayanay group.
