Why Climb in Bolivia with Alpine Ascents?

The expedition was great. Very well organized. Very good acclimatization schedule. I would highly recommend this climb to anyone wanting to gain experience and take the next step to climbing over 6000 meters.

Schedule Flexibility
An important factor in our climbers' success and enjoyment has been the ability to adjust our climbing schedules as needed to account for the ever-changing conditions in the mountains. Rather than throwing our hands up and ending an expedition when a route may become unclimbable, we treat these situations as challenges, and thanks to our experience and local expertise, we can change locations mid-expedition if necessary and offer alternate climbs and adventures. When such occasions have arisen our climbers regularly praise these adjustments as highlights of their expeditions.

Experience
