Today we explored Huaraz and discussed our options with a couple of outfitters. The team is very interested in both options 1 and 2. We decided on option 2 because it is more remote and less traveled. We may well be the only climbers on Chinchey this year. The weather is improving with scattered clouds and only a few brief showers. After lunch we did a day hike up to about 11,200 to check out some ruins. Tomorrow we plan to make a day trip to Japrujirca.
