Huascaran: Elias & Team Move to Camp 1 on Chopicalqui
Good afternoon from Chopicalqui Camp 1. We waved goodbye to our cook and base camp infrastructure this morning, and with the help of our invaluable porters, we ventured uphill. Four hours of straight climbing brought us to 16,075’. Now we are perched on an incredible terrace with a view of what will be our route the next couple of days. Chopicalqui sure is a more intimidating peak but we’re bringing our A game in anticipation of Huascaran. We’re keeping our fingers crossed for good weather as we venture above the 20,000’ mark here soon.
Stay tuned for more!
