Bolivia - Dispatch #11

Bolivia Trek and Climbing Program May 29-June 19, 2010

Guides: Danny Uhlmann, Alasdair Turner, and Juan Churra

Climbers: Danny Griffith (Bellingham, WA), Alfred Kwok (Claremont, CA), Diccon Westworth (Sacramento, CA), Jim Bonadonna (Poughkeepsie, NY), Raymond Gregory (Marquette, MI), Nancy Burke (Dallas, TX), and Margen Burke-Karr (Missouri City, TX)

Alasdair called at 2:00pm Pacific time.

Today was a rest day for almost everyone.  Danny and Diccon went off to climb a technical route on the Left Wing of Condoriri.  Alasdiar said that they could see them high on the mountain for most of the day.

It was extremely warm in camp today.  Alasdair reported that he wore shorts and a t-shirt most of the day.   The temperatures were in the sixties.

The group that stayed behind practiced crevasse rescue and a number of other techniques around camp.  They had pancakes for breakfast and will have trout for dinner.

Everybody is doing well.  A lot of people were taking a pre-dinner nap when Alasdair called.
