Very beutiful mountain, the best in Bolivia. After 3 weeks around Bolivia and Chile me with my father have summited the "Pico sur" in 3 days. 1st day from la PAz to Ecia Uno and to the base camp that is really in a beutiful place. 2nd day up to the condor nest in 3 hour and half. Here is pretty important to arrive early, because in the late afternoon start to be cold. 3th day wake up at 2, we leave at 2.45 and we reach the summit (6439m.) in 5 hours. 1h and half back to the 1 camp and the same evening back to La PAz. Not very difficult mountain, we found it in good conditions, just very very cold (I got 2 icy fingers)
