Attempted this beautiful peak with Mike Chen, but I encountered unexpected snow conditions - turned around at 5800 m.

My guide and I were alone on the mountain. From high camp, the avalanches and glaciers made noise all night. This was truly a spiritual experience.

Cloud Ocean

3:45 from the car to Nido de Condores in the afternoon, 4:30 to the summit that night. Perfect conditions, but a very chilly climb in shadow until late morning. The sunrise was spectacular, as were the views over the mountain's other summits and towards distant peaks. A big mountain, and a beautiful one.

Fun climb with my buddies Adrian and Julver. 2 of us were not acclimatized but despite that we maintained a nice and steady pace that got us to 6k before the unstable snow conditions forced us to turn around.

A 2 day climb: Taxi from La Paz then hiked up to High camp (Nido de Condores). Summitted on day 2 and descended back to Pinaya.

jasperreedNice but too fast  Sucess!


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.

Great climb. high camp >> Summit >> back to the car @ 2pm... wrecked but happy. Nido de Condores (high camp) offers great view over distant city of La Paz.

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.

Guillaume.CeyracSouth (and main) summit  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Aug 30, 2011


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.

A little windy at high camp. Around 3 am we headed out and it turned into a beautiful day.

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!

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