Description

Why not enjoying a perfect Bolivian snow together? This ski touring expedition will bring us to the 6088 meters of the Huayna Potosi.

This trip consists of a week of climbing different summits to get acclimatized. Finally, the week ends with the ascent of the Huayna Potosi, which is located 100 km away from La Paz.

Close from La Paz, Huayna Potosi is very famous among climbers but there are few people that try the opportunity to climb it ski touring. With 55-60º slopes during the last 200 m, you will challenge yourself and finally enjoy a beautiful view on La Paz, the Altiplano and the full Cordillera Real.

The ascent of Huayna Potosi in itself requires 2 days. I propose to you the following program for these last 2 days of the week.

Day 1 at Huayna Potosi
Transfer from La Paz in private vehicle to Casa Blanca refuge (4750 m). Climb to Campo de Rocas (5130 m). Peaceful climb up to the moraine and then a bit more steep on the rocks. We finish the day at the Refuge.

Day 2 at Huayna Potosi
Departure in the night. Quiet climb up to Argentine camp (5450m). Climb of an ice wall that brings us to the upper plateau. Peaceful climb up the final slope. This last part is a narrow and vertiginous ridge to the summit.
Total climbing duration on day 2 is about 6-8 hours.
Finally the pure joy with a ski descent from 6088 to 4900 m.
