At 7:30am EST on Friday morning, August 11, our team summited the mountain of Huayna Potosí, one of the highest mountains in Bolivia 15 miles North of La Paz. The summit sits at 19,974ft or 6,088m.
Today we are setting off to attempt the mountain of Illimani, the second highest peak in Bolivia at 21,122ft or 6,438m.
I experienced this same trip back in 2013 and am in shock by how much the glaciers on both mountains have receded. We will publish more info and comparison of pictures within the four years when we return later in the week.
For now, we are fueled up and ready to carry the Pack Creek Capital banner up another mountain!
