Format: Paperback
From Planeta Journal - Before his death in 1999, the author was a professional mountain guide and adventure traveler based in La Paz. A colleague and friend wrote: "His books are the best that have been written about Bolivia's trekking and climbing in decades." In this useful book Brain provides a number of choices of where to climb, including new and lesser-known routes in the cordilleras--Real, Apolobamba, Quimsa Cruz, and Occidental.

Format: Paperback
Yossi's local experience shines through in the intial advice and the route descriptions. The ranges, groups of peaks, approaches to induvidual mountains and the routes given for each peak are well laid out, clear and concise. Photgraphs are included to give an impression of the types of climbing and the setting. For the peaks and routes I have experienced the descriptions are excellent and I could have saved myself a lot of trouble if this book had been around earlier. The book is available at the same time as the infrastructure has improved to support visiting climbers so get a copy and get out there.

Format: Paperback
This is a great book covering Bolivian mountaineering--not basic hiking and trekking, but the true climbs.
Yossi was a fantastic person who, even 4 years after his death, is very much missed. He lived the spirit and passion that is the great country of Bolivia!
Hasta La Cumbre! Viva Yossi & Viva Bolivia!

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I just wanted to let you know that my friend Yossi Brain, the author of this book, was killed in an avalanche while climbing in Bolivia in 1999. (The latest (4th) edition of my book, the Lonely Planet guide to Bolivia, is dedicated to him.) Therefore, it's no longer accurate to say that he currently lives in La Paz, Bolivia. Perhaps, 'He lived in La Paz, Bolivia, until his death in an avalanche in 1999.'
