Perfect weather, great views, only a couple of others on the mountain, so a really enjoyable few days.

IdesMy first ascent of my life...  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Sep 8, 2002


Very tiring: no food or drink during the whole ascent/descent. Obviously I was a complete beginner. Moreover, the guides had too short ropes, so we had to climb the last ice wall in many times. But nevertheless an unforgettable experience.

Good conditions, it was cold, but not too cold, and hardly any wind. Unfortunately we had no views on the summit itself, but the clouds opened up nicely on the way down.

Several other groups climbed the mountain on that day, and as far as I know, all made it to the summit.

Don't like to sign logs unless I summit, but I'll make an exception here. 2 day climb with Ulf and guide Eulogio (great guide, but doesnt speak english). We made it to the ridge, ~50-100m from the summit and turned around. Ulf didn't like the exposure and I was relieved we were turning around - though I regret not pushing him to the summit! I hope to return one day.

Beautiful sunrise at the summit. After having stomach problems the day before and while hiking to the refugio I was a bit worried, but it all worked out nicely. Great mountain! It seemed to be the only summit with crowds near La Paz.

We stumbled into the high refugio late afternoon and climbed to the summit the next day. Lots of tourists up there from all over the world made for good conversations at the hut. Most knew nothing about climbing mountains and made the experience kind of amusing to me, but I´ll hand it to them because a lot of them got to the summit.

Ok, maybe HP can get a little crowded but the views are incredible, the summit ridge is awesome and the mountain is simply a great experience! Went with Eduardo Unzueta a Chamonix trained guide out of La Paz - he was super in every respect and even suggested an alternate route which helped me get to the summit when the altitude was beginning to have an effect on me. Strongly recommend both Eduardo & Huayna Potosi!

Started from base camp a little after 7am and bypassed high camp. Took about five hours from base camp to summit. Due to our late start, we had the mountain to ourselves and didn´t have a traffic jam on the ridge! Soft snow wasn´t a problem. Beautiful weather and views. Can´t complain about the weather on this trip so far.

Not so many people like others describe, but definitely too many unprepared tourists which underestimate the mountain. It's not any hard climbing, but the altitude counts.. We had quite good weather until we get to summit then came clouds and snow shower so the descent wasn't nice at all...

Climbed with AlexeyD. Amazingly, saw nobody the entire summit day except when got back returend back to the hut. With nobody on the route it seemed like a large, complicated mountain and a bit serious mountain for our team of two.

Summited on the moment that three climbers just fell of the westface. Fortunately they survived it. Nice summit ridge.

Hiked up to Campo Argentino & camped there completely alone (all tourists stayed in the hut). Climbed Via de los franceses with Martin, Christoph & Markus. Climbed the whole route in best neve without unpacking the rope & traversed to the main summit. We were alone during the whole climb. One of the best routes I have climbed so far.

This peak is an over climbed tourist trap that sees between 20-35 mostly underprepared people attempt the summit a day. If you want an easy, accessible peak with an obvious track to the summit, hit up H.P.

I wished I spent my time climbing Condorirri.
