Bolivia 2019 – Team Freddy Van Diesel at Chachacomani High Camp

Bolivia 2019 – Team Freddy Van Diesel Summits Pequeño Alpamayo!

Hi everyone!

I apologize as it looks like the audio post from yesterday cut off after a few seconds. I wanted to let you all know that 100% of our team summited Pequeño Alpamayo yesterday on a gorgeous day. Congratulations to the team! All the hard effort put into training and preparing over the last few months was evident as the team pushed through a long day in style.

Today we returned to La Paz for well earned showers, clean clothes, and a night on a real mattress. Tomorrow we begin our approach to Chachacomani. The team is looking forward to our attempt to break the 6000 meter mark in Bolivia in a few days!

Enjoy a couple of summit shots!

  • Guide Trip Report: Denali Traverse

    by Sam Hennessey Climbing in the Alaska Range in late spring sometimes feels like stepping into another world. The endless daylight, and the sheer contrast of Denali towering over the rest of the state gives it an atmosphere like no other. For the last decade, Michael Gardner and I have stared down from the upper […]

  • Epic Climbs That Might Not Be on Your Radar

    ‘Twas the night before Rainier dates were released, when all through the land Many a climber was stirring, contemplating high altitude plans so grand Their crampons were placed in the gear bin with care In hopes to use them on Rainier in weather so fair My timer was set for the exact release time To […]
