/ Guides in Huaraz Peru
I am travelling to the Cordillera Blanca in Peru in July and I am looking for a company to provide a guide for one or two guided peaks (I will be climbing alone as my partner does not climb). Nothing massively difficult.
I am looking for anyone's advice on guides they have used in the area, I have tried Skyline adventures after reading other threads on here and they have been very helpful, but can't get my itinery to match up with theirs. I have also tried Galaxia but have been unable to get them to reply to the contact form on their website.
Has anyone got any ideas / experience of guides in the area? I realise I could probably find someone in Huaraz when I arrive but want to take some of the stress out by having this pre-planned. I think I need a small guiding company which would be flexible enough to accomodate my needs.
Have you tried getting in touch with the Asociacion de Guias de Montana del Peru (Mountain Guide Association of Peru)? Admittedly, the office/info centre/meeting point (Casa de Guias) generally looked closed when I was there, but they have a list of all members so would be a good start.

There's a noticeboard that you can put a note on to look for partners too.
Try emailing or phoning Galaxia instead.

I have a few other random contacts in the town who may be interested in helping/organising something for you. Email me if you'd like some more info.
Yeah, Damian is good, I have worked with him for twenty years and he's always been reliable. If you've any trouble getting in touch with him let me know as I'll be out there this weekend.
I appreciate some very quick and helpful responses!
