      WELCOME TO THE CASCADECLIMBERS.COM FORUMS   02/03/18

      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!

Still working on the schedule but likely will be in Bolivia from end of June through mid-August, with most of July available for climbing. Having not been there before and never been above 5,000 m, I'm intersted in moderate routes and an intro to the area. Planning a week of aclimatization just hiking before climbing.

 

Been climbing for 34 yrs, some Alps and Patagonian experience, mostly in Cascades last 20 yrs.

Sorata is a lovely colonial town and is a climbing and trekking center. It's right at the base of one of the big ones (I forget the name).

Illampu, Ancohuma, and Pico Shulz. If you just have time for going into one area, go here.

After a week of acclimation and home school it will be a week of warmups in Condorri. Then a week somewhere - trying to figure that out, then packing in for 5 days of rock at Quisma Cruz.

 

Then treking with me esposa, some cultrual stuff, and then a week in the Amazon before heading back to La Paz for a few days to visit with a friend. Total 8 weeks.

 

So the first week I'm working on some possible partners but may settle for picking one up down there - week in Quisma Cruz is figured out. Middle week open to suggestions

You can squeeze in a climb of Illampu or Ancohuma in a week. 3 days Sorata at 9 to base at 16.5, 1 day high camp, 1 day climb, 1+ days back to Sorata...you'll already be acclimated.

Pico Shulz and Illampu are technical climbs. Ancohuma, the highest in the area, is moderate; similar in difficulty to the standards in the Condoriri area.

 

We hired a horse, horse driver, and his kid for the way in, and just a one porter for the way out, but we were in there for 12 days.
