Join me on a 12-Day Mountaineering Course in the Cordillera Blanca.
I will be guiding you not only through the course, but on a full service adventure within the Peruvian Andes. Learning is great, and in this case it is vital, but learning while enjoying some of the most incredible sights you will ever see is even better.
Mountaineering is an activity that demands your respect. It is as enjoyable as it can be dangerous, so you need to know how to do it properly. There are several skills a successful climber must know before they begin climbing. Thus the need for a course like this.
Some of the skills I will instruct you on include, Equipment Use and Care, Hazard Evaluation, Top Rope Management, Self and Team Arrest, Vertical Ice Climbing, Route Finding and Expedition Planning. We will also cover Glaciology and Altitude Physiology. You will learn the critical skills needed for Crevasse Rescue. Finally, on the last day, you will make an attempt to summit the majestic Mount Yanapaqcha (5,460m).
The course portion of this 12-Day Mountaineering Course is intensive, but not overwhelming. Leading up to the course portion however, you will get to enjoy some of the Cordillera Blanca’s most beautiful sights. You will see the turquoise water of the Laguna Churup and enjoy amazing views from the Peka Ventana.
At the conclusion of the course, we will return to Huaraz, where you will enjoy a delicious Banquet Dinner.
So come and enjoy the Peruvian Andes. Behold its beauty and marvel at its enormity, while also learning from experts the skills needed to explore its peaks responsibly and safely.
I will be awaiting your message.
