cumbre camping // altitudinal vomit center, ~13200. alex went to the 14200 peak from here.
spent the night getting ill from a lack of acclimatization. been up to 20000 without problems but this time i was knocked on my proverbial arse and didn't have the energy to brave the subfreezing temps for the typical photos.
on bristlecone pines, skip to 15:20
