Description


Excerpt from A Search for the Apex of America, High Mountain Climbing in Peru and Bolivia Including the Conquest of Huascaran: With Some Observations on the Country and People Below
For the cold nights we had sleeping bags consisting of two pairs of blankets in a canvas cover, with a ap to be drawn over the face. It occurred to me to carry Japanese stoves; small, cloth-covered tin boxes which a roll of prepared fuel will heat for two hours. With one of these in each pocket and good mittens, there would be no danger of cold hands. I had also a pair of heavy woollen mitts with long wrists, especially suited for scientific observations on the summit when the fingers must be free. For our further protection we had two tents, one of silk that it might be as light as pos sible, since at great altitudes neither man nor beast can carry half so much as below.
