A climbing paradise going insane. In a so called El Nino year this magnificent place of thousands of boulders and kilometres of beautiful volcanic cliffs for us turned into a hard challenge of burning sun, low oxygen, minus 20° at night and in the end 100km/h of wind. Despite all this I could send Zonda Loca (Zonda is a this kind of wind being brushed over the mountains – in French and German “Fön”) just before leaving.
The potential in Tuzgle isn’t explored by more than 3% and the possibilities for both high ball bouldering and rope climbing are enormous. But you have to love the rough volcanic soul of the Altiplano!
