5d4n Condoriri Massif Climb

1 Día| Camping| Transport| Feeding

The Condoriri massif is a cluster of thirteen mountains that rise over 5.000m, forming a circle of colors and beauty, its name given based on its likeness to a condor with outstretched wings.

This program is just great for mountaineering enthusiast and for those looking for a good acclimatization before to attempt other mountains considered as more technical in the Andes range.

This climbing adventure will have you summiting Pico Austria 5340m and two snow caped mountains in the region, Mt. Ilusión 5.350m; Mt Pequeño Alpamayo. We will have as a camping base the Chiarkhota Lagon with 4.600m our expert U.I.A.G.M mountain guides will assist you at all times.

 

Day 1: La Paz – Plaza de llamas – Chiarkhota lake

We pick you up from your hotel, approximately two hour drive to Lake Tuni, our muleteers and mules will be waiting for us and help us carrying most of the equipment to our base camping area near the shores of Chiarkhota lake, in the afternoon time to enjoy the beautiful landscape of the area.

2 hours driving, 3 hours trekking.

Day 2: Austria Peak

From our camping site, we’ll exit the valley of Condoriri, it will take us about 1½ to 2 hours to make it to Austria Peak 5340m making it a 3 hour climb overall, steadily climbing in a switchback pattern until we reach the ridge which will take us to the summit. Once at the summit, you’ll be treated to striking views of peaks of Condoriri Range, the left flank of Condoriri Peak with its glacier, you’ll find that the hike is not difficult but also an excellent trekking for acclimatizing prior to tackling other peaks. The descent shouldn’t be any more than 3 hours back to our camping site.

Night accommodation: tents

Day 3: Mt. Ilusión

Early start in order to reach the summit of Mt. Ilusion (5,350m). It is not a high climb but the approach gives us the opportunity to practice different skills (eg. glacial traverse) and helps in our preparation for the Pequeño Alpamayo the following day. The climbing will take 4 hours, plus 3 hours the return down to our camping site.

Meals included: breakfast, picnic and dinner

Night accommodation: tents

Day 4: Pequeño Alpamayo

A long day to reach the summit of Mt. Pequeño Alpamayo, 5400m The ascent starts relatively gently the first 4 hours, until we enter into the west edge face where the climb becomes more technical, and will take us about 2-3 hours, once reaching the summit, we return by the same route 4 hours climbing down to our camping site.

Meals included: breakfast, picnic and dinner

Night accommodation: tents
