"Part of a guided tour of the Salar de Uyuni and Lipez in Bolivia : our truck driver took us almost to 5400 m level on an old sulphur-mining road. (Uturuncu is a volcano) Hiked up from there. Cold and windy at summit. GPS reading (6068 m) was higher than nominal 6008 m . Found a geo-cache near the summit. Corrected date is April 17, 2016 (typo in my original report)" - Uturunku, geoffc, Apr 17, 2015
"Very mellow trip led by Alpenglow guide Jamie. I was pretty out of it most of the time but he got me through it. Just a long snowy haul with some icy-bits and occasional crevasse crossings. I gave up a few times but we kept deciding to go just a bit more and what do I know, we round a corner and I can see the summit just a hundred feet up. It was a proud end to a three week long trip to Bolivia." - Illimani, paperpanther, Aug 25, 2010
"I started from Pueblo Sajama with the jeep untill the end of th road just 200 m below the base camp where I overnight. The day after I climed directly Parinacota and I came back to Pueblo Sajama." - Parinacota, edoardomartelli, Aug 21, 2009
"Huayna Potosi was our first peak. We (girlfriend and I) arrived in Bolivia as backpackers very unprepared to climb so we rented all equipment. Met our guide and headed up to Base, then High camp. Started the climb at approx 1am and slowly made our way to the top. Weather was cold but calm and after a few hairy moments of fatigue and struggle due to the altitude we made it to the summit! A big moment for first time climbers." - Huayna Potosi, monkey, Jul 11, 2007
