Our group of 6 people stay at the shelter of Leaprus now.

It is great place: warm, fun, there is internet. That's just the weather is not yet good. Today we tried to go to the Pastukhov rocks, but we were blown from 4300. But we do not despair, we eat well, sleep and wait for a weather window. Tomorrow - day of rest and training on snow and ice.

Below there are a few photos from yesterday's acclimatization Cheget. The day was amazing, the sun, sparkling snow, wonderful view.

Best regards!

Sasha.

 Yesterday the sports part of our team climbed the highest point of Bolivia - Sajama volcano .

After taking a rest in La Paz after climbing Huayna Potosi , our team went to climb on Sajama. Unlike Huayna Potosi, the volcano Sajama is completely wild. Campgrounds , harsh conditions , high altitude , difficult technical climbing ... As a result , only half of the team was able to reach the top of this legendary peak.

And down from the mountains, the next day we plunged into the hot springs. That was real bliss . Swimming in the hot water, we looked at the top of Sahama and did not believe that another day we were standing on her ridge.

On our adventures in Bolivia does not end. Tomorrow we will saddle on bikes and go to the legendary road of death.
