And the work still going on...

That was probably my hardest contact with high altitude without acclimatize first.
I got to San Pedro, summited at the second day Toco (5.604m), one day to rest, at the fourth day i summited Lascar (5.592m). One day more to rest, and on the sixth day, i summited Sairecabur.
That was a happy climb because at around 5.600 m we found 5 friends lost in the mountain, and that was a particularly cold, very cold day. They could have freeze to death without any help that night. It was quite windy...

Man, that was hard...
In just 5 days, 3 summits higher than 5.500 m. The altitude of San Pedro de Atacama is only 2.300m!

Never do that, it's dangerous ahahahah....
