Pequeño Alpamayo Climb, Bolivia
Another climber took this great shot of our guide, Tom, and I heading up Pequeño Alpamayo. I enjoy the photo because it gives you a good sense of the scale of the peak.

Thanks! Yeah they were an Argentinian team that were moving so slow we thought we were going to have to go out for a rescue. They must have started 2 hours before us. When we passed them on the glacier (heading up) they looked like they were ready to turn around. I couldn't believe they did the face. We got back to camp around 3:00 and must have waited 3 hours before seeing them coming down.

It is certainly an awesome route. Check out this video of an amazing Bolivian Guide soloing the face

Great photo!
You know, i lost this summit bcuz of the damn plastic boots (Asolo - AkA as shit boots).
And was cold on the glacier of Tarija (-14°C), i almost had frostbite on my hands...But i'll try again some time and i'll try the direct route. I reached Tarija summit and went back to BC
Congratulations, amazing shot!
Cheers
PS: For me, that is the most beautiful bolivian mountain!
