      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

"Bolivia, July, 2002"

Recommended Posts

I'm looking for climbing partners to join a non-comercial, un-guided trip to "The Andes of Bolivia". This will be a 3-week trip. I'd like to spend the first 2-days in La Paz, relaxing, checking it out, & making arrangements. Then head to Copacabana (4-hrs. by bus). Stay the night & enjoy this town on the southern shores of Lake Titicaca. Next, hike to Yampupata (4-hrs.), then jump on a rowboat for a short ride to Isla del Sol. We'll spend 2-days exploring this wonderful little island, then back to La Paz, for what we came for "The Mountains". I'd like to spend 14 to 16-days attempting the following peaks: Pequeno Alpamayo (17,618ft.), in The Condoriri Group, this will be a fantastic area to acclimatize in & also a great mountain to climb! Next, Huayna Potosi (19,974ft.), some guide books describe this mountain as one of the easier (6,000m.) peaks, but I think this will be a good mountain to step-up the altitude a little. Finally, Illimani (21,125ft.), which dominates the views from the capital city of La Paz, & is the most sought after peak in Bolivia! All 3 of these mountains are in The Cordillera Real Range & are only 2 or 3 hours from La Paz. Feel free to contact me with questions or suggestions at: jandk@access995.com

Hey! Scott, The most expensive thing is going to be the airfare. The cheapest we've found is Ameican Airlines for $1,200 round trip. I'm thinking about $1,000 for the three weeks, but would suggest maybe $1,500 just in-case your having too much fun! Adios! Elwood
