Day 26 – Tocllaraju high camp

We allowed ourselves to sleep until 7 and then began packing up camp. I was happy to be able to eat some oatmeal and was feeling better than the previous days.

We left the Ishinca Valley at 9:30amĀ  and arrived at high camp at 12:30pm. About 45 minutes before arriving we saw some porters closing in on us. The race to high camp was on! Within the last 5 minutes or so the porters took a shortcut and narrowly beat us. So much for getting the best tent spot! We found a descent spot anyways after clearing away a bunch of loose rock. We’re now relaxing at camp, getting psyched for the climb tomorrow. This will be the most difficult climb we attempt of the trip, rated a D
