That probably was my golden ascent. The one I did everything I could to make it worse, harder.
San Pedro volcano is an active massive volcano at Atacama desert, Chile. The altitude on its highest summit (it has two) is 6.145 meters/ 20.161 feet.
The base camp (north side) is at 3.950 m.
To make it harder, I was absolutly alone (got a transport to drop me at the base camp which is only 500m by the road and to pick me up at the fifth day, but I ended at the 4th day and got a ride back to San Pedro de Atacama!), almost no water, just a botle of 1,5l. And isotonic drinks (6 botles of 600ml each).
No stove, and that means no hot food, just tuna fish canned and pringles.
And, to finish my punishment (ahahahahh), no tent. Bivy since the first day.
That was the result (I had to give up from San Pablo summit, too tired and hands hurting like hell from a close frostbite again).
PS: I was the first brazilian ever to climb that mountain!
