Hello friends, family and loved ones,
This is Alpine Ascent’s first Illimani climb of the season. Illimani is a huge mountain (21,125 ft, 6,439 m) located just outside of La Paz, the capital of Bolivia. La Paz, at 3,555 m (11,660 ft) is a great place to acclimatize so our team went sight seeing today. Our first stop was the Witches Market for supplies.
There were lama fetus and coca leaves that every expedition needs.
That snow coved peak in the distance is Illimani, our reason for coming here. So please join us as we attempt this Bolivian giant.
All our best,
