This was my first mountain climb and with no previous experience and aged only 18 I was a little concerned at the prospect of a 6000m peak! After reading this page we climbed with Bolivian Journeys and got a good tent, equipement and excellent guides. Didn't sleep too well on the rock camp and didn't fancy my chances of completing the climb at 1.00am when we set off, but 7 hours later we had reached the peak and looking back was my biggest achivement of my 5 months in S America. Anyone who feels up to the challenge I would definatly go for it! Good Luck (say hola to luis from the ninos)
