South America, Bolivia, Peaks near Condoriri, Cordillera Real

Peaks near Condoriri, Cordillera Real. Mitchell Anderson, Phineas Anderson, Lorelei Bode, Roman Laba and I spent a week between Zongo Pass and Mina Palcoco. We left Zongo on July 22 and having passed Estancia Coscapa on the 23rd, we camped just south of Cerro Rincon at the base of Condoriri on the 24th. On the 25th we climbed to the col between Condoriri and an unnamed, unclimbed P 5400 (17,717 feet), which I soloed. On the 26th Anderson, Laba and I climbed the west face of another unnamed, unclimbed P 5400, immediately southeast of the peak I had climbed the previous day and southeast of Cerro Balcón. On the 27th we passed Mina Fabulosa and camped on the north of Apacheta Pass. On July 28 all but I climbed a new route, the south face, of BAE 30 (17,704 feet), northwest of the pass.
