Andy just checked in with a happy climbing Team at Pequeno Alpamayo Base Camp. The route was a bit more exciting this year than the past. The Team gained the tongue of the glacier and then worked their way back and forth to end run the crevasses. That was a window to what the conditions would be like on the summit ridge.
When I asked about the summit ridge, “It was icy and we fixed the whole thing.” Said Andy. Once on top, they Team enjoyed great views of both Huayna Potosi and Illimani.
Great job everyone!
