In August 2010 Eszter Tompos arrived in Bolivia to climb three high peaks of the Cordillera Real, a subrange of the Andes mountains, Pequeño Alpamayo (17,600+ ft), Huayna Potosí (19,900+ ft) and Illimani (21,100+Ft) In the process she has learned about moving on ice covered glaciers, stepping over crevasses and placing ice-screws. She also learned some unexpected things, like what the difference is between a llama and an alpaca, how do those Bolivian women keep their top hats on and most importantly, what does it feel like to be the last man (woman) standing at the end of a guided expedition. Come and enjoy the pictures and we’ll guess together where the snowfields end and the clouds start when looking out and down at 20,000 ft.
