IMG Guide Adam Clark checked in from the Huayna Potosi Base Camp Refugio (15,420ft/4700m). The team is doing well and are excited to spend the night in the Base Camp Refugio. This Refugio is one of the cleanest Refugio’s I have ever had the pleasure of staying in. The owner of the Refugio is named Yolanda. She is one of the sweetest woman I have ever met in the mountains. She looks after everyone who comes in and you are often greeted with a smile. The team will settle in on the top floor of the Refugio and get some rest.
Tomorrow, they will pack their climbing gear into a duffel and head to High Camp (17,060ft/5200m) with the help of some porters. The trek to High Camp is not technical but as the team heads up hill, they will want to take it nice and slow with the altitude.
All is well on Huayna Potosi in Bolivia!
