We found a good campsite at 5,400m on the NE side of Nacimiento having spent a long day with heavy packs walking from El Arenal. The next day it took 4 hours to climb up a shallow gulley to the NE summit. We then descended to the col at 6,350m and climbed the true NW summit - this took a further hour.
"Got tight last night on absinthe and did knife tricks. Great success shooting the knife into the piano. The woodworms are so bad and eat hell out of all furniture that you can always claim the woodworms did it."
