Bolivia Team Lucas – Chachacomani Summit

Saludos!

Team Lucas is checking back in after a successful summit of Chachacomani; a new summit for the team and a new peak for Alpine Ascents.

We are resting in La Paz tonight and after a day in the city and a farewell dinner tomorrow, most of the team will fly back to the US. Here in Bolivia we will continue on to Illimani.

Enjoy a few photos from the last few days!

Bolivia Team Lucas Advances to Chachacomani

Hi everyone!

The members of Team Lucas are resting in cozy hotel beds in La Paz tonight after summits of both Pico Austria and Pequeño Alpamayo in the Condoriri region. The weather has been spectacular and the views have been gorgeous. Team Lucas, true to form, took many pictures of Andean animals in the Condoriri region, but I’m sure we have a few mountain pictures to share with you as well. We all enjoyed spending several days in the quiet and beautiful Condoriri region.

Tomorrow morning we leave for our next adventure and summit goal… Chachacomani! We may need to work extra hard to plow in a route to the summit as the snow here continues to be slow to consolidate, but we are ready for the challenge.

Thanks for following along!

This was a great trip. Rachel, Victor, Juan and the rest of the crew worked hard to arrange a very interesting and well thought out trip. The traveling and sightseeing during acclimatization was excellent, the climbs that were selected were very good. I especially enjoyed Pequeño Alpamayo.

  • Guide Spotlight: Dawa Yangzum Sherpa

    While Alpine Ascents is fortunate to work with dozens of world-class guides and climbers, we are especially grateful to work with Dawa Yangzum Sherpa. Hailing from Nepal’s Rolwaling Himal, Dawa’s resume includes numerous 8000m ascents (Everest, Cho Oyu, K2), successful entries in high-altitude ultra-marathons, time spent as a climbing ranger on Mount Rainier, and instructorship […]

  • What should I bring on Mount Rainier?

    We are often asked what gear is necessary to climb Mount Rainier. If you’re curious to know what we use, check out this video, in which our Operations Manager Matt Miller talks through our entire gear list. Climb on!
