Alpamayo Trip Report (#81)

I climbed with Swis Stockton of Granite Arches. Great climb. Cold at night, warm in the daytime sun. Bring food and water (200 calories and 1 quart of water are not enough). We made it in 7 days from sea level. The climb is challenging, yet steady. The views from the summit and Col camp are incredible. Be forewarned about crowds. Try to get up early to avoid icefall on the ascent. Dangerous and painful ice of the descent seems to be unavoidable. Climb fast, be safe, and have fun!
