It was a nice day in Bolivia and the Team took advantage of it and got a nice acclimatization hike in. They climbed to just over 17,000’ and got a few great views. It is endless in the Cordillera Real.
Back at Base Camp after the hike, the Team rigged harnesses and prepped for tomorrows training day at the base of the Glacier. This Glacier is about a 45-minute trek from BC and the tongue of the Glacier offers some steep climbing immediately. They will spend a few hours training and then get ready for the climb of their first objective, Pequeno Alpamayo (17,482’).
