Huascaran Climbing Notes

Cleber Toledo from BRAZIL writes:

I have been in Huaraz 10 years ago and climbed the Pisco mountain.
Nowadays I'm a triathlete and I don't climb any more, but I would love to pass the 6.000 meters.
Next year I'm going to get vacation in June or July. Would it be a good time to climb the Huascaran?
