Thanks to David Metzler for adding this peak.

Condoriri is a beautiful and popular peak north of La Paz, Bolivia. It is a massif consisting of three peaks, suggestive of the head and two wings of a condor (hence the name). The main summit is on the "head" of the condor.

Access is via the small settlement of Estancia Tuni (dirt road) where burros can be hired, to a valley base camp at 4700m next to Laguna Chiar Kkota. The normal route climbs a large scree slope L of an icefall to reach a glacier plateau. From there a hidden snow/ice couloir (crux) leads to the summit ridge (very airy).

Nearby peaks include Pequeno Alpamayo (c. 5400m), a small but beautiful snow pyramid, and Cerro Ilusion (c. 5300m).
