Bolivia - Dispatch #14

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)

Danny called Sunday the 13th at 11:26am Pacific time with the following dispatch:

"This is Danny from high camp – the refugio on Huayna Potosi – we just got here safe and sound. Everyone is chilling.

There’s not a cloud in the sky destpite the fact that the weather report was calling for a 30% chance of showers. Imagine that – rain in Bolivia. I’ve never seen it!

Tomorrow we’ll get up around 1am and leave at 2, heading for the summit. After that we’ll head back to La Paz for a big siestra and fiesta and celebrate the end of part 2 and all our climbing and good times together. We’ll probably give you an update then. We’re doing well! Talk to you soon."
