Denali next?  Sucess!

Did this to see if I could handle the high altitude. Learned a few things, hope to apply lessons on Denali in the next few years.

Unguided with Elaine via normal route  Sucess!

This was an amazing capstone climb to our 4 month trip in South America. Highest I have ever climbed as of this point.

Little new snow  Sucess!

Fog and wind on the summit.
The guided groups didn't go because of 5cm new snow.

Normal route  Sucess!

What a briljant mountain. Great view from Nido de Condores to Sajama area - La Paz. We went a bit to fast. It was 5:30 when we arrived on the summit... Bloody dark and bloody cold..

cold summit  Sucess!

we were very lucky inbetween big groups we had the summit for ourselves ... only the 5 of us in base and highcamp and then on the summit ... wonderful!

A beauty  Sucess!

An unmissable climb if you're in La Paz.
It took me 5.5 hrs from high camp, and it was quite windy throughout the night but when we got to the top all winds died down. That lucky I was :)

Failed attempt

Attempted this beautiful peak with Mike Chen, but I encountered unexpected snow conditions - turned around at 5800 m.

Alone on the mountain  Sucess!

My guide and I were alone on the mountain. From high camp, the avalanches and glaciers made noise all night. This was truly a spiritual experience.

Normal Route  Sucess!

3:45 from the car to Nido de Condores in the afternoon, 4:30 to the summit that night. Perfect conditions, but a very chilly climb in shadow until late morning. The sunrise was spectacular, as were the views over the mountain's other summits and towards distant peaks. A big mountain, and a beautiful one.

Fun climb with my buddies Adrian and Julver. 2 of us were not acclimatized but despite that we maintained a nice and steady pace that got us to 6k before the unstable snow conditions forced us to turn around.

Normal route in 2 days  Sucess!

A 2 day climb: Taxi from La Paz then hiked up to High camp (Nido de Condores). Summitted on day 2 and descended back to Pinaya.

Nice but too fast  Sucess!

Summited with a local guide in 2011. Easier than expected, not much more difficult than Hyuana Potosi. Don't do what I did and go super fast on the ascent, arriving in the dark. You'll need that energy later!

Normal Route  Sucess!

Summitted with a completely clear sky. I actually found it easier than Huayna Potosi, definitely less traffic. Did the summit and returned to the base village all in one day.

Normal Route  Sucess!

Great mountain with great views. Very easy, just bit long. With my friend we even didnt have oportunity to use ice axes.

Normal route  Sucess!

Great climb. high camp >> Summit >> back to the car @ 2pm... wrecked but happy. Nido de Condores (high camp) offers great view over distant city of La Paz.

Normal route  Sucess!

Climbed the normal route with SP member LS. It was a fun one even though we had to attempt it twice due to 2 stolen ice axes in high camp.

South (and main) summit  Sucess!

Amazing 4 hours taxi trip to get to pueblo Pinaya. 2 hours to get to BC. Next morning, 4h10 to get to nido de condores, one of the most beautiful campo alto I've ever seen. On the third day, 4 hours to arrive at sunrise at the summit. Wonderful views over La Paz & El Alto, Huayna Potosi and even Sajama, Parinacota & Pomerape (200 km away) !
Climbed with Fabrice. We went there with Porfirio (guide) and Savino (cook and carrier) from Inca Land Tours, the cheapest agency we found in Sagarnaga street (Galeria Gladys n°233) : 300 USD all included with taxi transportation. We found the organisation and people very profesionnal and friendly and strongly recommend their services.
