  10 Mountains in 38 days


Update: At 13h30 (local time) the expedition Bolivia 2004 team arrived at La Paz, Bolívia, where we want to climb 10 mountains in just 38 days.

I hurt my feet last night (in a glass window!!!), so we will need to wait until it will be ok (I wish in the next weekend), when we began to go to mountains.

Here is very cold and dry (very good to climb) and this days we will stay resting in La Paz to acclimatize and waiting my hurt stays better.

When I'l have more news I'll send you! we are sponsored by ePortateis, Riguardare, Solo, Salomon and Timex.

Tacio (from La Paz!)

Tacio Philip Sansonovski from Brazil and his climbing partner Alcides Battistin are going to La Paz, where they will climb about 10 mountains in 38 days of expedition, including 3 6000+ m peaks (one of them - Ancohuma, 6424m, never climbing by a Brazilian team).

Their expedition is divided in 5 "minor" expeditions, between the phases they will go back from mountain base camps to La Paz to rest and get more food etc. Their calendar is here.

Tacio Philip Sansonovski , told us, " I think this is the first expedition who wants to climb so many peaks in just one expedition: Chacaltaya (5395 mts), Pirâmide Blanca (5270 mts), Pequeña Ilusion (5350 mts), Tarija (5300 mts), Pequeño Alpamayo (5420 mts), Condoriri (Cabeza Del Condor- 5720 mts), Asa Leste do Condoriri (5480 mts), Huayna-Potosi (6088 mts), Ancohuma (6424 mts) e Illimani (6439 mts)."
