Climbing 6 peaks ranging from 5320m to 6438m, just in 12 days!
My 12km in 12Days challenge in 2014 was an unforgettable experience, where I met my friend Walter George, AGMP/UIAGM Mountain Guide in Peru, and we aimed to climb two 6000m peaks in twelve days.
This year we’ll be conquering some of the most spectacular peaks in Cordillera Real in Bolivia, home to more than 600 peaks over 5000m.
We are aiming to climb CERRO AUSTRIA, PIRAMIDE BLANCA, PEQUEÑO ALPAMAYO, CABEZA DE CONDOR, HUAYNA POTOSI, and the jewel crown ILLIMANY. Our plan is to conquer all 6 peaks ranging from 5320m to 6438m, just in 12 days!
