Since we did the climb during Bolivia's wet season, there were no other climbers on the peak anywhere, which was awesome. Foggy conditions until the sun broke through, and awesome summit views.

My first 6.000 m peak! Great experience, although too many people on this mountain for my taste...
Beautiful views to the Altiplano, to Lake Titicaca and even to Sajama from the summit.
Had an incredible guide (Bernardo Guarachi from Andes Expediciones, he was the first Bolivian to climb Mt. Everest in 1998).

When I climbed Huayna Potosi fifty years before you did, our party was practically the only group to climb it in 1958. Air travel has made this mountain much more accessible to many people who otherwise would never climb it.

We had a great time on Huayna Potosi. The trip was everything We had hoped it would be. Summitting was definitely the high point. Overall I thought the expedition and specially the guides were excellent,in my book you could not find a more qualified company, they`re the best in Bolivia...I personally recommend using www.bolivianjourneys.org for your next expedition...

Hardly anyone else on the mountain that day and the sunrise from near the top was incredible. One of my favorite peaks just because of its beautiful profile.

THe Cordillera Real truly is an enchanting place. What a rush to summit a mountain with such a great view of the range. Wonderful.

AndinoSuccessful ascent with great conditions - Normal Route  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Apr 9, 2007


We had some great conditions to climb it.
A little mist at first but then a clear sky after an hour walking. Not too cold, and perfect snow conditions.
The last slope is a real challenge, save up some stamina for it ;o)

We did the ascent the agency "Alberth Bolivia" located on street Illampu in La Paz. Good guides and quite cheap compared to others. Prior to the ascent we had done the 3-day trekking from Tuni (via Condoriri Base Camp) to Base Camp of Huayna Potosi. Perfect to acclimatize and warm up, with three 5000m passes.
