Pequeño Alpamayo Climb, Bolivia

Another climber took this great shot of our guide, Tom, and I heading up Pequeño Alpamayo. I enjoy the photo because it gives you a good sense of the scale of the peak.

Re: Cool photo

Thanks! Yeah they were an Argentinian team that were moving so slow we thought we were going to have to go out for a rescue. They must have started 2 hours before us. When we passed them on the glacier (heading up) they looked like they were ready to turn around. I couldn't believe they did the face. We got back to camp around 3:00 and must have waited 3 hours before seeing them coming down.

It is certainly an awesome route. Check out this video of an amazing Bolivian Guide soloing the face

Ohh man

Great photo!
You know, i lost this summit bcuz of the damn plastic boots (Asolo - AkA as shit boots).
And was cold on the glacier of Tarija (-14°C), i almost had frostbite on my hands...But i'll try again some time and i'll try the direct route. I reached Tarija summit and went back to BC
Congratulations, amazing shot!
Cheers
PS: For me, that is the most beautiful bolivian mountain!
