Alpamayo Trip Report (#79)

Fortunately for myself, my friend Rick and our guide Rolfe Oostra, the storms and people of July and early August had all left, and we were alone for two nights at col camp and our summit climb on the 27th. Conditions were good, with easy hooking of prior boot/axe placements in the ice near the top. Beware the seracs just below col camp- evidence of several recent slides was apparent. We spent an extra night at col camp in order to descend through the seracs in early morning rather than late afternoon.
