South America, Peru, Cordillera Huayhuash, Nudo Millpo, 1974

Nudo Millpo, 1974. On our expedition from Italy, I was accompanied by my wife Maria, Giuseppe Cazzaniga, Italo Valmaggia, Giancarlo Del Zotto and Celso Salvetti. From July 28 to August 22, 1974 we were in the mountains, which lie just south of the Huayhuash and west of the Raura. We explored the Pumarinri valley up to Laguna Viconga. Above and east of the Quebrada Alpayacu, all of us on August 3, 1974 climbed P 5190 (17,028 feet), the first peak on the ridge which runs southwest from Millpo Grande to Cerro Piruyapunta, and P 5160 (16,929 feet). On the 6th Cazzaniga and Valmaggia climbed Millpo Chico (17,323 feet) along its southwest ridge. On the 8th Cazzaniga, Valmaggia and Del Zotto ascended Jancacuta (17,684 feet) while Maria and I climbed P 5120 (16,962 feet), which lies 1ΒΌ miles south of Millpo Chico and east of Jancacuta.
