We sent IMG guide Greg Vernovage to Bolivia, on his way down to Ecuador (where he will be leading our November Ecuador climbs). Greg is doing an on-site review of our Bolivia program with our outfitters in La Paz. Right now, though, Greg is acclimatizing at a resort in Copacabana, on the shore of Lake Titicaca, right on the border with Peru. Not a bad place to hang out waiting to build up those red blood cells!
This next week Greg will be taking a run up Huayna Potosi (20 miles N of La Paz) and Illimani (30 miles ESE of La Paz) with our Bolivian guides to check it out, with our goal being to restart the IMG Bolivia program for 2011. We’ll look forward to tracking Greg’s climbs on these beautiful and accessible 6000m peaks.
Check out where some of our other climbs are via the SPOT Trackers they’re carrying. We’ve got Mark Allen on Ama Dablam along with George Dunn & Austin Shannon in Mexico.
