Direct Route  Sucess!

Had an amazing climb up the Direct Route of Pequeno Alpamayo. I did it solo so there was definitely a feeling of being edgy to it, as the airy exposure is definitely hard to ignore. I had a great time though and if you´re going to climb in Condoriri, you should definitely consider going up the Direct Route. I posted a route info page for those interested and you can always message me with questions. One of the most beautiful mountains in South America!!!

Great Climb  Sucess!

The ridge was pretty icy so we placed a few ice screws. Two tools were very useful in these conditions. We climbed P. Alpamayo on day 3 of our trip and felt surprisingly good at the summit. I need to get back to that valley to climb some of the other peaks down there some day.

Normal Route  Sucess!

Nice climb. Great view from Tarija summit; the ridge is stunning from Tarija or from the saddle, and looks huge, but really doesn´t take much time at all. I was lucky and had great weather. Climbed free.

first in Bolivia  Sucess!

Climbed with AlexeyD. Great conditions, no ice, could be done with late start. A downclimb into the sadlle before the final ridge was a little "spicy".

Amazing snow pyramid  Sucess!

After a week of sunny weather, conditions started to deteriorate in the Cordillera Real. Summited in whiteout conditions. Still we did get a glimpse of this mountain on the Tarija descent. Stunning snow peak !

Great Climb!  Sucess!

A beautifully aesthetic ridge line on a great Andean peak. My favorite climb that I have done to date. I climbed this peak as an acclimatization peak for Sajama in the 2009 (Northern Hemisphere's) summer season. Writing a trip report as we speak.

Do this climb!!

Great climb  Sucess!

After spending a couple of days in La Paz we climbed Pequeno Alpamayo as a warm up for Illimani and Sajama. Many thanks to Bolivia Journeys and Eulogio Tarqui (our guide). www.bolivianjourneys.org (the best muntaineering company in Bolivia...)

Normal Route  Sucess!

Axe, Old Guide and I left on an early alpine start with the aid of a halfmoon to light the way. The conditions were perfect for our crampons. A beautiful range...I should of planned more time here to climb some of the other 12 peaks behind camp.
