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!
