Boriss AndeanRoute Climbed: Chihuata or Grau Route.  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Mar 23, 2010

Boriss Andean

Started the climb at 9:30 am from the trailhead (3,400 m) . Got to Base Camp (Campo PirĂ¡mides Alto) located at 4,610 m after 4 hours. Perfect weather.

The climb started at 2 am.. very long switchbacks throught the steep and rocky scree ridge. Got to the crater rim overlook after 6 hours and to the summit (5,822 m / 19,101 ft) after 7 hours.

Nice views of Chachani, Pichu Pichu and even of Cordillera Real de Bolivia in the distance.

Got back to BC by the scree/ash field located below the crater rim. I still have volcanic ash in my boots.
