IMG Senior Guide Adam Clark checked in last night to let us know the team arrived at Base Camp on Illimani and are looking forward to heading to High Camp today. After takes the twists and turns during the drive and passing through small villages, the team pulls into a soccer field at the end of the road at Illimani. From here, the team treks for about an hour and a half before arriving at one of the most beautiful camps I have ever stayed at. The views are beautiful and at night, the glow of La Paz in the distance is beautiful.
Illimani is a great climb and icing on the cake for the team. This mountain is a challenge at over 20,000 feet and the route to High Camp will keep everyone’s attention as it follows a rocky ridge. Once at High Camp the team will set up camp, eat and rest before the summit push tomorrow.
All is well in Bolivia!
