Wales Quimsa Cruz

The northern valleys of the Cordillera Quimsa Cruz in Bolivia have been largely neglected until recently, so offer plenty of opportunities for exploration and first ascents. From an ABC at 4,420m below Laguna Chillhua Khota, this team succeeded in climbing 18 new HS to E2 rock routes between 200m and 250m in length, and making the first British ascent of six nearby peaks. The highest points reached were Cuernas de Diablo, 5,200m, and Cerro Torini, 5,100m.
