Tor BjorstadRoute Climbed: Normal Route Date Climbed: 2001.01.29  Sucess!
Summited in 7.5 hours from Nido de Condores, at 12:15. No trouble, having spent a lot of time on the mountain and acclimatized very well. The Canaleta was still snowy, which helped a lot.

Climbed it solo. Loads of new snow and very cold on summit day. Great few weeks away. If anyone needs some GPS points for this route let me know by emailing - weeve@lycos.co.uk

We had outstanding weather, which made life much easier. This was a very social mountain, I enjoyed meeting people from all over the world. We spent 11-days getting to the top, & 2-days coming down. This was a good schedule for us, as nobody was effected too badly by the altitude. The scenery wasn't much to talk about, dry & barren, so I spent my time talking to all the different folks.

Easy climbing all the way up. Took my time with my group ascending. Spending many days at base camp which help make a quick ascent towards the top. Round-trip from Nido de Condores, (18,000') to summit in 6 hours. Very stormy out. Got some excellent video of the route up and at the summit.

Contact me for excellent video of the whole Route.

Climbed with Mountain Madness, with Cecelia Mortenson as lead guide. Great way to spend the last day of the millennium. We then went down through the Normal Route.

Climbed the Polish traverse route with Erik Slot, much more beautiful than the normal route which we used to descend.

Check out my 7 summits pages for more info, a complete tripreport and 80+ pictures of the mountain.

Keep climbing,

Reached B.C. well acclimatized. Did Ojos del Salado (6.893 m) in Chile before. Just used one High Camp, Nido de Condores, 5.400 m. On summit day we had clouds on the top and light snow-fall, it was quite warm, -4° C, no wind. So we kept all our toes and fingers, but we didn't have any view. Wish to have done the Polacos Route.

Several times on the summit. Always an epic. This is a peak that always draws me back year after year. Many thanks to Laurie Skreslet for giving me the opportunity to guide with him each year. February 1987, February 1988, January 1990, December-January 1990-01, January 1992, January 1995, January 1997, January 1999, December 1999, January 2000, December 2001 and December 2003. January 10, 2006. I'm writing it all down here as I am starting to lose track of the years I have put in on this peak. Now if I added together all the loads I have carried....
