British Female Bolivian Cordillera Real 2001

Whilst returning from an earlier Bolivian expedition, this leader spotted some attractive peaks in a remote area of the Cordillera Real which appeared to offer plenty of scope for exploration. The first foray from Base Camp resulted in the probable first ascent of Dome I, 5,220m, by its S Ridge. Later, five new routes were climbed (Alpine PD to TD and VS rock) before the weather broke, giving the team members plenty of time to hone their bridge skills.
