La lista dell'attrezzatura necessaria per scalare una vetta sopra i 6000m nelle Ande.

This list, is meant to give you an idea of what you will need to climb a summit in the Bolivian Andeas reaching 6000m or more. You do not have to bring everything from your home country, as nearly everything can be rented separately in La Paz. The guides are the one in charge to provide rope, ice screws and/or snow pickets. Our cooks bring the cooking gear and the cutlery and provide boiled water in the morning and afternoon.
