Illiniza Sur, 3 climbers died

Postby Boriss Andean » Wed Oct 24, 2012 5:48 pm

Three climbers members of "Club De Andinismo De La Politecnica" died last Sunday after reaching the summit of Illiniza Sur. Apparently one the members of a rope team slipped and pulled her two other partners down to the void.
