South America, Bolivia, Cordillera Apolobamba, Overview

Cordillera Apolobamba, Overview. After an unprecedented amount of activity in the area in 1997, 1998 saw three commercial expeditions and perhaps only four significant climbing trips to the Apolobamba. Conditions were good early in the season, but nieve penitentes developed in June, presenting familiar time-consuming problems.
