Traverse from Pico Humboldt Date Climbed: Dec 29, 2007
After two days getting to Laguna El Suero, I climbed Pico Humboldt via the normal route and then did the ridge traverse to the summit of Pico Bonpland. Not too difficult, but enjoyable. Reversed part of the traverse then headed down until intersecting the normal route to Humboldt. Great weather and fantastic views!
Climbed Bonpland in winter season which is much more beatiful and challenging climb (with a lot of snow). First we summited Humboldt Peak and a couple of hours later, we summited Bonpland. The next day we went to La Concha Peak (4.922 m) and we ended the trip by climbing Bolivar Peak (5.007m).
Those were 6 excellent days above 4.000 meters, having climbed 4 highest peaks in Venezuela.
"Got tight last night on absinthe and did knife tricks. Great success shooting the knife into the piano. The woodworms are so bad and eat hell out of all furniture that you can always claim the woodworms did it."
