South America, Peru—Cordillera Blanca, Taulliraju, Southwest Buttress

Taulliraju, Southwest Buttress. Our climb of Taulliraju was not a new route but rather an alpine-style climb of the 1980 Italian route. Alex Lowe was my partner and it took us three days in June. The route is a real classic with difficult rock (excellent granite) and ice. Grade VI, 5.9, Al.
