I´m a 30 year old guy from Sweden doing an eight month climbing trip in South America, slowly working my way up from Patagonia, via the Lake District, to Colombia, Peru, Ecuador and finally Bolivia, squeezing in as much rock, ice and snow as I can along the way. I´ll be spending Aug 15-Sept 18 in Bolivia, being based around La Paz, heading up in the Cordillera Real mountains as often as I can, and will need a new friend or two, to play in the snow with me! My brother will be joining me for Pequeno Alpamayo, Cabreza de Condor and Huyana Potosi (SW ridge)between Aug 18- Aug 30. During that period you are welcome to tag along if we ca find you a partner and if you want top share taxis, mules, etc. Between September 1 and 19 I´d be up for one or possibly two trips to Illampu or Illimani, or some rock climbing area.
I mostly do trad- and ice climbing, but I´ve done quite a bit of mountaineering in the past, in places like Dofourspitze, Mt Blanc, Mt Rainier, Aconcagua, the Liskamm traverse, Artesonraju, Alpamayo, etc. Safety is my #1 priority, so hotheads need not bother contacting me. Don´t mind early mornings and I´m in pretty good shape for long and fast approaches. Will be acclimatized all the time, from previous peaks, and I havn´t had any problems with altitude in the past, so ideally I would prefer fairly quick ascents.
Got a single rack, tent, stove, rope and the guidebooks, and will do more research on the peaks as time is moving closer.
If it sounds interesting, check out my profile, send me a message, email me on firstname.lastname@example.org, or add me on facebook.
Sorry for my poor Spanish……:)
