A transfer will take us from La Paz to Lago Tuni, and up to the base camp for Condoriri, where we will have our first views of Cabeza del Cóndor and Las Alas (The Wings), an amazing rock formation.
We will leave our base camp at 5 AM so we can first climb the Pico Tarija at 5.300 meters and then, the Pequeño Alpamayo Peak (5.350m). We will return to base camp.
Early start to reach the summit of Pico Ilusion (5,350 m). Although it is not a high climb, it will let us practice different skills, such as glacial traverse, and will help in our preparation for the main goal: Cabeza del Condor.
It will be a long day in direction to the Cabeza del Condor’s summit. The ascent is gently until we enter into an ice canyon. Here the climb becomes more technical. Once at the summit, we’ll return by the same route to our base camp.
We will return to Estancia Tuni, where our transfer will be waiting for us in order to take us back to La Paz.
IFMGA/UIAGM Mountain Guide from Bolivia.
I made my first ascent at an early age. I have been guiding professionally for over 20 years, passed safety and rescue courses in the sister Republic of Peru with Swiss trainers, and my training culminated with the French school of the ENSA (National School of Sky & Mountaineering) International certification UIAGM opt / IFMGA.
I conquered the Summit of Bolivar, Humboldt and others in Venezuela, the peaks of Cotopaxi and Chimborazo in Ecuador, Alpamayo and Huascaran in Peru, and also reached the summit of Aconcagua (6954 m) twice the same day from Base Camp ( Plaza de Mulas) in Argentina.
My knowledge of the Cordillera Real in Bolivia is very extensive, so much so that I helped the Military Geographical Institute produce their map of the Cordillera Real (the only official map of the area). I am an active member of the Bolivian Andean Club.
I was also hired by the President of Bolivia (then) - Jorge Quiroga - to climb Huayna Potosi and many delegations of embassies.
Nowadays I work together with a group of local guides, also AGMTB and IFMGA. So if I can't guide myself the trip you request, a colleague of mine will guide to an unforgettable time in the Bolivian mountains!
Stay up-to-date on the best adventures!
