Detailed Product Description
Stuttgart, Chr. Belser, 1955, 1st ed. 104 pp, 78 b/w photos, 2 tipped-in color plates. In German. Tall Hardcover DJ Near Fine.

Despite the title which sounds like it is a tourist book, this is an important account of several first ascents in the Peruvian Andes. The best climb included Heinrich Harrer just back from Tibet, after he wrote Seven Years in Tibet and before White Spider and I Come From the Stone Age!

In 1953, the AAVM (Akademischer Alpenverein München), in cooperation with the German Alpine Club (DAV), carried out an expedition to the Cordillera Vilcanota Peru. The 3 participants succeeded in the first ascent of the Ausangate (6384 m) with Heinrich Harrer - and further five and six thousanders: Surimani 5450m; Huayna Ausungate 5700m; Colque Creuz 6111m; Cayangate 4 6001m; Campa I 5400m; Campa II 5550m.
