Huascaran: Elias and Team Summit Chopicalqui!

Greetings from Chopicalqui High camp! What a day… This mountain is no joke: five 60-degree pitches at 20’000ft, no visibility for the upper half of the mountain on ascent, and no visibility on the entire descent! But we did it! We reached the summit of Chopicalqui! The team needed to put up a fight and they did. Everyone stood on top shortly after 8:00 AM on a seven hour uphill strenuous push. We rolled into our sleeping bags after an early dinner that our porters had ready upon arrival. Tomorrow we’re looking forward to town and well earned rest.
