Detailed Product Description
Madrid, Dencel, 1963, 1st edition. 340 pp, mapped end papers, b/w and color photos. In Spanish. Pictorial hardcover - no dust jacket issued. Near Fine condition with the usual shelf wear for a book this age.

First Spanish expedition to the Andes of Peru in 1961 according to diaries and notes of the members of the expedition. In view of the Spanish conquests of the sixteenth century, it is paradoxical to note contemporary Spain’s lack of involvement in mountaineering and exploration. Actually, Spanish mountaineering clubs have existed since 1876, but their field of activity has been limited to the Alps and mountain ranges in Spain. This changed in 1961 when a Spanish expedition climbed in the Andes of Peru, making 38 first ascents in the unexplored Nudo de Ayacachi and completing the first ascent of the northeast ridge of the Huascarán Sur in the Cordillera Blanca. Thus, after 400 years’ absence, Spanish conquistadores returned to Peru, though with intentions different from those of their predecessors.
