jasperreedNice but too fast  Sucess!

jasperreed

Summited with a local guide in 2011. Easier than expected, not much more difficult than Hyuana Potosi. Don't do what I did and go super fast on the ascent, arriving in the dark. You'll need that energy later!

Summitted with a completely clear sky. I actually found it easier than Huayna Potosi, definitely less traffic. Did the summit and returned to the base village all in one day.

Climbed the normal route with SP member LS. It was a fun one even though we had to attempt it twice due to 2 stolen ice axes in high camp.

Amazing 4 hours taxi trip to get to pueblo Pinaya. 2 hours to get to BC. Next morning, 4h10 to get to nido de condores, one of the most beautiful campo alto I've ever seen. On the third day, 4 hours to arrive at sunrise at the summit. Wonderful views over La Paz & El Alto, Huayna Potosi and even Sajama, Parinacota & Pomerape (200 km away) !
Climbed with Fabrice. We went there with Porfirio (guide) and Savino (cook and carrier) from Inca Land Tours, the cheapest agency we found in Sagarnaga street (Galeria Gladys n°233) : 300 USD all included with taxi transportation. We found the organisation and people very profesionnal and friendly and strongly recommend their services.

Climbed together with SP'er nbaisburd, but a thief stole our ice axes in high camp, so we even couldn't start the climb. See trip report, GPS track and photos at my blog Distantpeak

I climbed the normal route with BERSPECHTE. Nice climb , good conditions, quite cold and windy upthere.

Be extremly careful, a lot of thieves happen there, esepcially when coming bac and be tired, DO NOT LEAVE anything unattended outside your tents, our group suffered thefts of values. Dangeer at CB and even Nido de condores.

Beautiful peak.

Beautiful day with not much wind. we reached the summit at about 6:50 just ~30min after sunrise. Descending back to the road the same day was tough. Nido camp is one of the most dramatic campsites I have ever seen.

A beautiful mountain and a great route made this the highlight of the trip for me. The sunrise over the jungles below to the east was incredible. Illimani has been the main mountain I have wanted to climb for over a year, and I´m extremely satisfied to finally have climbed it.

Climbed from Nido with my guide, Eduardo Mamani. Good conditions and a little cold as expected, but not much wind. 4 hours from Nido to the summit. We descended all the way to the car afterwards (tough day!). We had the entire mountain to ourselves!

Gido

After reaching Nido de Condores weather turned against us. A nightly snowstorm resulted in avalanche prone slopes. Tricky descent down the ridge.

After our guide ran over a puppy in La Paz we weren't sure if the gods would smile on us ... they did!

We climbed the normal route and summited at 8:00 am. It was my second time in Bolivia and hired Bolivian Journeys once again. The did a great job, thanks to Eulogio Tarqui (our guide). www.bolivianjourneys.org (they`re the best no doubt...)

Herb

Climbed the normal route to Pico Sur via the High camp "Nido de Condores".
My highest summit so far (July 2008). Good conditions and great views. When we arrived at the summit, we had it mostly for ourselves. That's the nice thing about Illimani: very few people. We only met a small spanish group before the summit & a small italian group joined us later on the summit. Again - as on Huayna Potosi - it was real fun and very instructive to climb with our guide, Bernardo Guarachi (the first Bolivian climber on Mt. Everest in 1998, there even exists a stamp with his portrait in Bolivia!). To climb such a summit is really rewarding and I can't wait to return to the Andes.

Nice weather, not so many people....6 all day, made for a great summit. Between the elevation and digestive issues I was rather slow to the top which was less than 6 hours on the normal route.
