South America, Bolivia, Kunatinkuta

Kunatinkuta. On September 11, Giuseppe Ferrari and I drove to the Abra de Zongo that divides Huayna Potosí from Kunatinkuta. From Base Camp in the high valley just below the west glacier, we climbed the next morning to the crevassed west wall and reached the top of Kunatinkuta (18,247 feet) a little after noon. We descended the rocky north ridge because the steps cut on the way up had melted in the hot September sun.
