We knocked the "bugger off".
Yes we did it. Waychu Picchu is the thimble shaped peak in the background of most photos of Machu Picchu. An early morning start at 5am, on a rainy misty morning. Luckily we were in the first batch of 200 people and started the long steep climb to the top. Certainly challenging, and in places very steep and narrow, but basically a very good track. It took about 45minutes to actually climb to the top, but this did not include photography time including my first video.
Fortunately the weather cleared about 3/4 of the way up and we spent about 30 minutes, in full sun, on the summit.
More images in the Travel section, under Peru.
Can I have some feedback on the duration it is taking to load the "Peru" file. There are a lot of images and if it is taking to long to download, I can split it into smaller folders.
