Day 2: High Camp – Huayna Potosi Summit (6094 m.a.s.l.) – La Paz (3600 m.a.s.l.)

To reach the summit, we’ll start our ascent at 3:00 am taking advantage of the solid land. We’ll enjoy a unique sunrise. The route includes a “pala chica” of 30 meters with a 50 degree slope. After that, we’ll follow flat paths and slope sections in order to reach the last sloping part of 45 degrees called “pala grande” which will take us to the summit. We’ll climb down following the same track to reach base camp and La Paz.
