ElCapitanKoolAid10 years dream

ElCapitanKoolAid

One of the worst seasons ever in Cordillera. We had two attempts on Alquimia. First time we waited 10 days and a window opened: we went for it but we got stormed 100m from the ridge. We came down to Huaraz and watched " Touching the void" and we went again and just touched the ridge and came down. succes here is to come alive.

Good ice exists on the North Face. It is possible to climb a couloir to the summit cornice.



The moraine and glacier approach is long, but relatively uncomplicated.
