Luke reported that the Team is doing well and they are on schedule in Bolivia. The Team was up at a reasonable hour this morning, got breakfast and put Copacabana in their rearview mirror. It is time to fine tune their sights on the Cordillera Real Range. To do this, they will spend one night at an intermediate camp called Tambo Condoriri. This camp is quiet, in fact, I call it an IMG camp because there has never been another team in this location at the same time as IMG. To the left is Condoriri and Pequeno Alpamayo and to the right is the west face of Huayna Potosi.
The afternoon was spent sorting gear and taking an acclimatization hike to around 15,000 ft. “The Team did great and are now ready for some home cooking and a good night sleep,” Luke said.
Tomorrow, the team will wake up, pack up camp and load the donkey’s and llamas for the trek to Condoriri and Pequeno Alpamayo Base Camp. It is a mellow trek with great views up and down the mountain range.
All is well in Bolivia!
