I was feeling strong after my last climb so I decdied to team up with Adam and 4 bad ass Chileans the climb Ranrapalca. The mountain is 20,2017 feet and this year has rarely been summited. The route has been climbed many times, but the problem arises after the route is completed. The traverse to the summit is vey short but covered in waist deep snow which has posed as a problem for almost every other party. Our plan: Go fast, go light, go early, blast the summit before sunrise when the snow is still firm.
