South America, Chile—Northern Andes, Llullaillaco

Llullaillaco. On September 18-21, Rodrigo Jordán, Juan Sebastián Montes, Claudio Lucero, Cristián García-Huidobro, Christian Buracchio and I climbed one of the summits of Llullaillaco (6723 meters, 22,058 feet), where we found pieces of wood which probably were used by the Incas in sacred ceremonies 700 years ago. The nearest trees are more than 300 kilometers away.
