El Tigre ValderramaRoute Climbed: Normal Route Date Climbed: July 1999

El Tigre Valderrama

Got there afte one week in la Paz, very nice and very beautiful. Took three days to get to the summit, as I was aclimatizing. Could not make the last part of the ridge. I climbed it with some Brazilians friends. but One piece of advice: check the Tikimany Peak. Its views from the Huayna are awesome.

Climbed normal route without taking the summit ridge. Took the east face. Perfect weather. Great view to Lake Titicaca. Had problems because of missing acclimatisation and because of not sufficient water.

The first time I did was my first time ever wearing crampons and firs time above 5300m. My guide and I started out from La Paz at midnight reached Bc. 0130 and we left at app.0230 I don't know what time we summited but it was a little late 09-1000 I think. Nothing could be seen due to fog.We were back at Bc by 1300.

I returned a week later with a friend and we spend the night a little lower than Plaza Argentinadue to "sleep low climb high" reached the summt early and the view was spectacular. Originally we wanted to do another line but there was too much snow. It would have been possible later in the season.
