NEW REGS IN CORDILLERA BLANCA

NEW REGS IN CORDILLERA BLANCA

Date: Sat, 1 Oct 2005 13:19:39 -0500 (CDT)
Subject: Peru Cordillera Blanca access is in danger --> [Fwd: THE AMERICAN ALPINE CLUB E NEWS September 2005]
From: "Litvak, Dmitriy"
To: poxod@lists.poxod.com

Please find below the American Alpine Club newsletter which details
changes to the rules of access to Cordillera Blanca!
I think it is one of the beloved playgrounds for our club. Personally, Ihave a project in laguna Paron for next year which may become less possible or more costly due to the new rules!

I wonder if we can come up with a letter of protest from the club as a
whole. We can have everyone sign the letter and send it to INRENA
(their emails below). If no one minds, I could compose a letter in Spanish and/or english and send it to the list. Everyone who would wish to sign
would send me a response with subject PROTEST SIGNATURE. I would
attach their names to the letter.

Wonder if I can post it as an invitation so that people on all lists
get it?

Dear Members,
I hope you will read the brief report below on the rule changes in
Peru's
Huascaran National Park and follow the links to detailed information
about
the rules on the Club's website. Our membership's experience in South
America-indeed in any international climbing destination-positions us
uniquely to offer advice that can result in ever-improving climbing
management policies around the world. I hope you will consider
responding
to the Peruvian park managers, especially if you have personal
experience
in the Cordillera Blanca. As the only climber's organization in the
United States with the relationships and reach to affect policy in
other
countries, we take our role here extremely seriously. Conveniently on
this
issue, our current president, Mark Richey, has both extensive
experience
and many friends in Peru. He has graciously volunteered to do whatever
it
takes as our ambassador in this important dialogue.

Phil Powers
Executive Director
