Condoriri Group, Overview. The dry conditions meant that Cabeza de Condor (5648m) was devoid of snow and the few teams that attempted it reported extremely dangerous conditions (the peak is made of rotten loose rock). The popular Pequeño Alpamayo (5370m) was very icy and the descent to it from the minor peak of Tarija proved to be a loose-rock nightmare.
