Cordillera Huayhuash. The Cordillera Huayhuash has been practically unvisited since 1987, but interest is now being revived due to the decline of the activities of the Sendero Luminoso. Doris Walter and her French party unsuccessfully attempted the standard route on Rasac in 1992. A joint British- New Zealand-German party tried Yerupajá and Americans Mark Richey and Barry Rugo attempted a new line on Rondoy. All found the mountains significantly changed and the routes notably different.
