Good morning Weekend Warriors!
As you do your morning stretches and drink your cup of joe I thought it would be good idea to entertain you with some South American alpine action. The Andes are an incredible, magnificent range and well worth exploring. But don't take my word for it...watch the videos!
The first one on our line up is an ascent of the West Face of Tocllaraju in Peru. This is an amazingly scenic climb and the views from the 19,790 ft summit are breathtaking.
The second video takes us over the border to Bolivia to showcase Illimani. Illimani is the highest peak in the Cordillera Real, rising to 21,201 ft. The video documents the entire climb and even features a soundtrack of the always classic Enya.
