Description

The Cordillera Blanca is undoubtedly one of the most beautiful parts of Peru. And within this stunning mountain range, the Pisco (5,752 m) mountain stands out for its beauty and accessibility. So don’t miss out the chance to reach the summit of this colossal peak.

We’ll depart Huaraz towards the Callejon de Huaylas Valley. And, along the way we will pass different towns until we reach Yungay. Then, we will head to the Huascaran National Park through a narrow passage in the Llanganuco Valley. It is here where we’ll get to see the dazzling Chinancocha and Orconcocha lakes. Later we’ll keep driving until we reach the Llanganuco Valley, from where we’ll hike to Mount Pisco‘s base camp.

Then, we’ll begin early our second day, due to the exhaustive journey ahead of us. We will cross rocky paths and reach a glacier edge. Thereupon, we’ll rope up, and climb on the south glacier. After that, we’ll continue on the west ridge, where we’ll find some steep slopes. And when we finally reach the summit, we’ll get the most impressive views of the area!

Upon completion of our route, we’ll retrace our steps and head back to base camp. We’ll spend another night there, to recover our energies and reflect on the adventure we just embarked on.

Finally, to end our journey, we’ll pack up our equipment and head to Cebolla Pampa. There, a vehicle will wait for us to drive us back to Huaraz.

So if you are looking forward to join this mountaineering adventure to reach the summit of Pisco, don’t hesitate! Send me a request to book this wonderful trip. It will be my pleasure to guide you across this wonderful peak in the Cordillera Blanca.

Mountain Guide

IFMGA/UIAGM guide from Perú.

I was born in the Huaraz city, which is located between cordillera blanca & cordillera negra neighbor of huayhuash mountain range.

My passion for the mountain was born since I was a child, because I watched my father going to the mountain. When I was 13 years old I started going on treks with my father and clients, and as soon as I finished my high school I applied to the high school mountain center studies (CEAM) in 2001 and I graduated as an official mountain guide in 2005.

I have a wide guiding experience in trekking and climbing, organizing, trekking and climbing expeditions into cordillera Blanca & huayhuash in the Peruvian mountains.

I guided successfully in Mexico, Argentina where I climbed conquering the mount Aconcagua at (6959 m).

In Peru I have climbed the most beautiful mountain in the world mount "Alpamayo", and the Peruvian highest peak "mount Huascaran south peak". In 2005 I made a speed record climbing mounts "Alpamayo" & "Quitaraju" in 32 hours 16 minutes. I also opened some new routes to climbing in cordillera Blanca.

Aside from the AGMP / IFMGA certification, I also have the WFR certification.

Thank you explore-share for a wonderful via feratta experience. We have been wanting to learn for a long time but don't have the facilities in Scotland. The guide Mitja was extremely helpful and knowledgeable, answering all my many questions and providing advice. On the day head to take another group but he quickly arranged another guide Borut, who was brilliant. We had a fantastic morning learning via ferrata at Hvadnik in the gorge. It gave us the confidence to later hire our own equipment and go out in Mojstrana. Altogether a five star + experience. Thank you.
