This morning Tim and Bolivian guide Vinito planned to head to Pequeno Alpamayo, while John, Greg, and Richard set off to Pyramide Blanca. Not long after leaving camp, John and Greg could feel the effects for the altitude and made the decision to turn around and head back to basecamp. Richard got them settled back in at camp to rest with the porters and camp manager then joined up with Tim and Vinito. Together the trio successfully summited Pequeno Alpamayo.

Saturday will begin the last objective for this section of the expedition. The team will then move south past a series of colorful altiplano lakes to set up basecamp at the very foot of Huayna Potosi... the final goal.
