Chopicalqui Trip Report (#846)

Reached the top in a white out. On descent the snow stake ripped that I was abseiling off at c 6200m. I fell 30ft and compressed 2 vertebrae when I landed in a crevasse. It was a long and painful descent, thankfully aided by 2 swiss climbers also on the mountain. 6 years later I am now fully recovered but 2cm shorter! Be careful with those snow stakes
