Climbed in two days with Bolivian Journeys (Calle Sagarnaga). Although I have done a lot of hiking this was my first true mountaineering ascent. The altitude and wind made it demanding, especially the last 200m but it wasn't challenging from a technical standpoint. I highly recommend the guides with Bolivian Journeys though you should check all your gear thoroughly in LaPaz; the zipper on my jacket was broken but everything else was in good condition. Seeing the shadow of the peak on lake Titicaca at sunrise was one of the greatest sights of my life. Just keep putting one foot in front of the other and you'll make it to the top.
