Topic - Realistic lowest temps in Andes in June? and boots?

Caralynh - on 29 Dec 2012
Somehow I seem to be heading for Peru in June. Up to about 6100m. I've been trying to find info on realistic temps, but answers vary from -10 to -25 and below. Big difference when I feel the cold when not moving. I also assume that daytime temps at lower altitudes may be pretty warm. Anyone care to confirm or deny this?

Secondly, boots. I currently have a rather old pair of Salomon SM Lites which have served me well up to over 4000m paired with sabretooth crampons. Is there any chance I'll get away with them this year? If not, any recommendations for boots that are likely to be warm enough but also precise enough for quite a lot of scrambling and are available in women sizes?

Cheers!
