The route is well marked and leads to an evident moraine edge, once at the lodge and after a short break we will begin to check and verify the mountain gear. We will eat early and try to get some rest in order to be refreshed for when we commence our summit attempt, on the following morning.

After a very early breakfast (around midnight) we will begin heading up the glacier, aiming towards the east face and arriving at the Pala. We then continue all the way to the top arriving at the summit of Mt. Huayna Potosi (6080 meters) after about six hours of ascent. Once at the top we will have some time to enjoy the breathtaking panoramic views of the Andes Mountains and the rising sun in the east. After a while we start descending arriving once again at “Campo Alto”, and then on to the base camp, where our vehicles will be waiting for us to drive us back to La Paz.
