We are proud to share a few of our first ascents of 2015 that have been published in the american alpine journal 

A little video showing how it is to descend Huayna Potosi on skies (the 4th time for us in the year 2015), The unstable weather from this "el niño" year offered excellent conditions late in the climbing season.
