I remember that road. Did you climb the peak?

Unfortunately not. It took me four days to get there hitchhiking (very little traffic but good adventure:). When finally there I got seriously sick and had to abandon all my climbing plans. Bad luck!

I'm very sorry to hear about your illness. Was it related to the altitude? That's very adventurous of you to hitchhike in such a remote area. When I was there it felt like the ends of the earth.

I had bronchitis. I went to Ojos right after Aconcagua and altitude was not a problem, which only added to the frustration. But at least I could lay in a hot pool near Laguna Verde and take pictures:) And it felt like the end of the earth indeed - only me and two carabinieros in that huge area. Did you climb Ojos?

We did climb Ojos. What a let down for you though! I had a similar experience in Switzerland last year. I had just finished acclimatizing on Monte Rosa and I was ready to go to Mont Blanc when I found out I needed immediate surgery for a weird health problem. My partner was able to do Mont Blanc solo while I was in the hospital.
