Bouldering in Chironico

The original plan for the last bit of Nick's stay here was to ski some 3000+ meter peaks for a few days... but the temps were high enough that wet slides were likely even relatively early in the am. So we got a crashpad and a guidebook and headed to Chironico - what a fantastic forest, littered with perfect granite boulders! The photos are an experiment in high-contrast split-toning... may change without notice...
