Seeing the snow's brightness in the night, the starry sky, hearing the silence.......It was unforgettable. Lobelia.

The weather was perfect - only sun and clear sky. Even no wind. Perfect snow condition and view from the summit. The green lake below is something stunning!

Did climb to the top without difficulties and hurry in 4 hours from the Base Camp.

Bad weather (this seems to be a common theme for me) with no views. A bit disappointing. More rock and less glaciated climbing than I expected.

My first 5,000 m peak. A great climb, but a lot of work on very little Os. Great views.

My second 5000 meters. A hard climb with snow before the glacier. Long but great experience and landscape (Copa, Tocllaraju, Ishinca, Ranrapalca,...). Really I was very tired after this mountain, but I was very very happy the next day.

Leaving Base Camp at 4.350 meters around 3.15 h in the morning, we reached the summit at 7.45 h (4,5 hours), back down by 10.15 h.



Blue sky and beautiful views on the surrounding mountains.



Easy climb with some variation, rocks as well as snow.

After a failed attempt on June 30 due to deep snow and wind slabs, I reached the summit three days later in 4.5 hrs from base camp. What a great climb! It has a little bit of everything - steep snow slopes (two tools helpful), a broad sweeping glacier, easy rock scrambling, and a nice sharp summit. I really enjoyed the route, although the moraine leading up to the glacier was a bit tedious. My partner Tony Lombardo also reached the summit.

It took me 4 hours from base camp to the summit, 2 hours down. One of those silly days racing to oneself.

Climbed in June 2002 with Micah Lambeth. Nice sunny weather once we got a few hundred feet above the foggy valley floor. Crowded base camp but had the mt to ourselves - lucky timing I guess. Moderate climbing - just a couple stretches of about 35 degrees. Nice small summit.
