One of the many 17,000 ft peaks in the Condoriri Massif. The area can be reached in a few hours from La Paz, and a three hour hike leads you to a beautiful base camp at the basis of the Tarija glacier under the Condoriri. From the base camp (Campo Argentino), where plenty of water is available, a one hour hike takes you to the tongue of the glacier. From there one can attempt many different interesting peaks including Piramide Blanca, Pequeno Alpamayo, Ilusion, Ilusioncita, Aguja Negra, and Huallomen. They are all reacheable in a few hours from the beginning of the glacier.
