I spent the night of the 17th dry heaving, unable to eat and with a mild fever. I went to bed thinking I would not be able to stick with our original plan: a simple walk up Pisco. I decided to pop a Cipro in the morning and after an hour I was feeling like a million bucks.
Change of Plans:
Cory and Tony had noticed I was not feeling well so they had gone out and gotten smashed that night. They both woke up with hangovers. I started talking with two Columbian climbers that I had a met a few days ago and they were attempting a climb up Huamashraju which was 4 pitches of 5.10 rock and steep snow hiking to the top. I was feeling WAY better and this sounded a lot more fun than just hiking to the top of mountain. I told Cory and we were super psyched. Tony had a major hangover and his knee was a little sore, so he sat out on this one.
