    At 08h00 we leave La Paz in order to reach the Huayna Potosi shelter which is situated at the Zongo mountain pass (4720m/15.485ft). We pass a series of Lagunas before reaching the foot of the Huayna Potosi. Upon arrival we prepare the material necessary for the climb and after lunch we head to an ice wall not far from the shelter where we train in the use of crampons on ice. We return to the shelter and the rest of the day is free.

We spend the day relaxing and getting ready for the climb. Dinner is served early in order to get some rest before we start our summit attempt at 01h00.
