This link is to contact Marlon Neyra, who started Piura Outdoors a year ago, They do a lot of climbing in and around Piura, northern Peru. Anyone working with Mountain Project who fluently speaks Spanish should contact him and invite him to update areas in Northern Peru. I have spent a lot of time there and would love to see that part of the country rise in visits from the climbing community. Thanks
