Vicuna and Alpaca from Guanaco Approach # 11616

Below is a description of the photograph you were looking for, and the circumstances surrounding the photo.
Date: 2008.08.05
Vantage Point: From the southwest ridge approach to Guanaco

Caption: The eastern face of Vicuna with Alpaca behind right. The scramble route up Vicuna is centre right of the peak.

PhotoDescr: Denis Blair, Ted Oliver, Al Lizee and I drove up the Upper Coldwater FSR and followed a well-flagged trail to the Vicuna/Guanaco col.

We scrambled up Vicuna first; it has a short Class 4 section that can be made easier with a fixed chain.

Guanaco is a straightforward walk-up from the col. Great views from both make this an excellent half day trip.
