Starting The Year Right! Date Climbed: Jan 2, 2011
It was great to see those Yareta plants in person but the altitude made it a challenge. This peak was chosen as part of a Bolivian acclimatization schedule to get out team ready for Ojos del Salado and Aconcagua. See the trip report.
"Nothing in this world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful people with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent. The slogan "press on" has solved and always will solve the problems of the human race."
