IMG Senior Guide Adam Clark checked in from Base Camp on Pequeno Alpamayo (17,482 ft). The team had great weather for a climb this morning. Leaving Base Camp, the team trekked about 45 minutes up the trail before arriving at the tongue of the glacier. From here, they eat, drink, crampon and harness up for the glacier travel section of the climb. After climbing for about 2 hours on the glacier, the team arrived at the “first summit.” From the first summit, the team can look across the saddle and see the main summit ridge of Pequeno Alpamayo. Down climbing some mellow fifth class rock, the team will then cross the saddle and head up the summit ridge.
The team is now resting at Base Camp and will be up around 6 am to head to the trailhead. The Team will resupply food and continue to Huayna Potosi Base Camp.
Perfect climbing and weather in Bolivia!
