Great news from the Team on Illimani overnight. Base Camp on Illimani is one of the best camp sites in the world! The team sleeps near a small stream in the meadows of the lower mountain. At night, the moon rises above Illimani and the view of the lights in El Alto and La Paz are amazing.
This morning, the team packed up camp and they are heading to High Camp. The route to High Camp begins with a trek up and over the first ridge to more technical terrain. At the lunch stop ledge, the team kicks back the pace and slowly works their way up the ridge to High Camp (17,875ft). This is a small camp that fits 4-5 tents. The team will have the afternoon at High Camp before eating an early dinner and heading to bed. It will be an early night for the team so they can wake up and start heading for the summit!
