Hello! I will be in Bolivia to do some touring and try some ascents.
And just like Pieterjan i'm thinking about trying Pequeño Alpamayo and Huayna Potosí...
A buddy adviced me to try Pequeño Alpamayo or Piramide Blanca, and then HP, for a good acclimatization.
I don't have any experience in ice climbing as there's no snow in the country i live.
I think i have a good physical and i have been practicing bouldering since a while, though.
Plus, i'm making a schedule for the best acclimatizing, spending some days at 3600-4000m. altitud cities and doing an "easy" Chacaltaya ascent before PA.
I'm arriving alone in Bolivia in July, and some questions are still troubling.
Is it easy to join groups for Pequeño Alpamayo? Someone knows how early i have to "book" in agencies to ensure it? Agencies told me that for HP it is guaranteed.
Do you think i have good chances to succeed in these ascents? Will I be well acclimatized with this schedule?
I'm afraid because i've read many relates in some forums, about failures in the peaks.
I'm excited otherwise because of other relates about people's triumphs in the summit!!
Thanks! And sorry for english errors (i'm far from fluent
