On 21st September 2013 QUECHUANDES organised in cooperation with La Casa del Escalador a clean up of the Los Olivos climbing site, situated just outside Huaraz. We concentrated on cleaning the river which was in a deplorable state.
Thanks to the extremely hard work of national and also international climbers the place is now much cleaner. In just one day we collected some 300kg of rubbish + a giant tire! But unfortunately much more trash remains ... We plan to return!
This clean up was part of the regional initiative "Clean Up Our Mountains" from Access Panam for the day "Clean Up the World". The campaign had groups in different countries of Latin America cleaning a climbing area.
Thank you very much to everyone who took part, together we did a great job! Let’s keep on working together!
