Access to Pili involves a long detour around the Salar de Pujsa, then continuing up a drainage to a very rough track to a high trailhead (as it is). We hiked to Pili's shoulder and 5600m sub-peak, turning back due to wind. Although beautiful in its own way, Pili is an immensely stark, lonely and unforgiving environment.
"Got tight last night on absinthe and did knife tricks. Great success shooting the knife into the piano. The woodworms are so bad and eat hell out of all furniture that you can always claim the woodworms did it."
