Detailed Product Description
Poland, 1980, 1st edition. 183 pp + 28 pp b/w photos. In Polish. Used paperback. Near Fine.

Report from the expedition of students and graduates of Poznan universities affiliated with the Academic Tourist Club in Andes in 1974. The purpose of the expedition was to explore the Andes in Peru and Bolivia. The expedition took place in the rainy season, lasted 7 months and ended with reaching 18 peaks, e.g. Nevado Huacshash 5644 m and Huayna Potosi 6200 m. The most difficult proved to be the peak of Cerro de la Amistad Peruano - Polaca (5495 m) due to massive snowfall.

The expedition abounded in many difficulties starting with the fight against the authorities of the Polish People's Republic, who wanted to cancel the expedition at the last minute, through several serious car breakdowns, to a broken leg during the rescue of a mule falling from the slope, and a snow-ice avalanche that prevented the attack on the highest peak Peru - Huascaran. Lovers of mountain equipment may be interested in the unusual equipment of the trip, including hooks, hammers and ice axes forged by a Poznań blacksmith, transport barrels carried on carriers, and cottage labor clothing. The only professional equipment was smuggled by Czech friends. Participants will tell not only about the mountain struggles, travel by boat and car crossing but will also share the backstage of unusual preparations.
