Condoriri owes its name to its shape, from the distance it looks like a Condor with its wings spread. It is to the head of this Condor where we will get.
Experience on ice climbing is essential, good if you do it after Pequeño Alpamayo and Huayna Potosí, you must be well acclimatised. Allow 5 or 6 days above 3500 m before going to the head of the Condor.
