The Itsy Bitsy Spider

Gregg Biesly, Robert Rauch and I went to Tortoral Pampa to try a new ice route.  We climbed The Itsy Bitsy Spider (V, WI4, M4, 1000m) which lies pretty much dead center and tops out near 18,000':

We left La Paz after I dropped AnnaMaria at school.  Illimani on the way there:

A pleasantly uneventful 2.5 hour drive brought us to a place where we could leave the car at about 15,000':
