At 5,686 meters above sea level, Vallunaraju is a mountain in the Cordillera Blanca of Peru. It’s very near Huaraz and it’s a moderate ascent to the summit. From the top, we can contemplate fantastic views of the city and surrounding peaks. Additionally, it’s an amazing place to practice mountaineering and improve your abilities.

The purpose of our course is to prepare you for future climbs and help you develop your safety skills in the mountains. Avalanches, rock falls and crevasses are often the cause of accidents, so it’s very important for climbers to be aware of these dangers and be prepared for setbacks.

On this course, we’ll focus on the necessary mountaineering abilities to face a climb safely and protect yourself and your team. We also have a simple formula to make decisions in the mountains that we’ll teach you during the course.

As for the itinerary, on day 1, we’ll depart from Huaraz to the campsite in Vallunaraju, where we’ll have an introductory talk and a practice session. On day 2, we’ll teach you about the crevasse rescue system and have the possibility to go to an ice cave in the evening. On day 3, we’ll go for Vallunaraju summit and head back to Huaraz.

Please, keep in mind that the level of this ascent is moderate, so it’s important to be physically fit.

So, do you think this program would suit you? Then contact me by sending the request to book your place. I’ll be glad to teach you all about mountaineering safety on this course.
