The Cordillera Blanca offers many options for alpinist. Some, such as the peaks of the Ishinca Valley, are technically moderate (though climbing at altitude is always an aerobic challenge), while others, such as Artesonraju or Chopicalqui are quite demanding, both technically and physically.

Tocllaraju, a beautiful 6345 meter (20,812 foot) peak in the heart of the Cordillera Blanca, is a great objective for experienced and skilled climbers, looking for their first 6000 meter summit.

As always, we welcome private trips to these and other destinations. Give us a call to discuss the various options.

special arrangemen

This is a great high altitude expedition for experienced climbers. Chopicalqui is a beautiful summit in the very center of the Cordillera Blanca. To acclimate, and also for the fun of it, we'll climb several other summits in the Ishinca area, including 6032 meter Tocllaraju.

Nevado Artesonraju

special arrangement

This is a difficult expedition up a major Peruvian summit. We'll visit two areas in the Cordillera Blanca. We begin with an acclimatization ascent of Nevado Vallunaraju, then move onto the more challenging Artesonraju.

special arrangement Private programs for your own group of buddies. More information, fees and scheduling details.

not offered for 2016

We are not offering these trips for the moment as recent increases in objective hazards are, to us, unacceptable. Read more about problems on Alpamayo and Huascarán.
