One of the most beautiful mountains I've ever seen. I'd climb it a 1,000 times over if I could.
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.
Absolutely spectacular final ridge to the top! A pure beauty.
Condoriri park is very nice place. Mountains for all peoples. Normal route is an easy glacier travel, vith some crevases and nice ridge to reach the peak.
Beautiful ridge, which remind ed me of the "domes de Miage" in the Mont-Blanc range
Snowy weather, 20 cm of fresh snow above 5000 m, but fortunately the weather improved for the last part of the ascent
Good conditions on the ridge then
4h30 of ascent from the camp at 4800 m
Great climb, amazing conditions. Prequill to climbing the face of Pyrimida Blanca, also in amazing condition.
Mild weather, minimal crevasses and solid snow made this a five star climb.
Climbed a day after successfully reaching Piramide Blanca. Took 6 hours up and 3.5 hours down. We were not very fast but all of our team made it. No wind or cloud in the sky. Standard ridge route is not very technical but we lowered and rapped off the steepest section.
Reached the top with three friends in a perfectday after summited Pico Tarija (5150mts).
One of the classics summits in Bolivia's Royal Range.Grade AD+
what a gorgeous climb! one of my all-time favorites!
What a cool climb. Had great conditions. I wish I had more time in Bolivia for other mountains.
Left camp at 3:30 AM, summited at 8, back by 11. Great weather (zero wind, warm temps), good conditions throughout. Crevasses minor and easily avoidable. Only suggestion would be to avoid getting off glacier early on the descent for a tempting rocky gully on the right. It led us to a nasty scree slope.
Summited at 09:30 after rock climb Tarija. Good weather with low winds. Started at 02:30 from Base Camp.
Beautiful climb, not too technical, incredible weather (climbed in a short-sleeved shirt).
We reached the tiny snow summit of Alpamayo chico after 7 hours from base camp (4650 mts).
Not very technical, beautiful, cold, blue sky above.
What an aesthetic route! Conditions were great, we met great company on the route, and had beautiful weather. Our llama fetus from the mercado brujas gave us great luck this day!!
Fantastic day, excellent views, and perfect weather. We were the first two on top! And we got to summit two mountains for the price of one, not bad at all.
fresh snow on approach up glacier, perfect on peaks. Me & big Dave hauled 2 young rookies to summit & back. Also soloed S face of Pico Austria (exposed), easy on N side of E & W ridges.
