Description

Ascend the incredible Mount Pisco in the Cordillera Blanca on this unique mountaineering trip. Located in the Llanganuco Valley, Peru, this fantastic 5,460-meter peak is both challenging and stunning. Join me for 4 incredible days in the heights of Peru.

During this tour, we’ll tackle mountains and glaciers to reach Mount Pisco’s impressive summit. We’ll be rewarded with 360-degree stunning views of the nearby Mt. Huascarán, Chopicalqui, Huandoy, Chacraraju, Artesonraju, and others. You can read the itinerary below for a more detailed description of what will be doing each day.

All mountaineers are welcome on this trip. Experienced and non-experienced climbers will both love this adventure. However, I do suggest you arrive to Huaraz a couple of days earlier to get used to the height, no matter how experienced you are. That will also give us the opportunity to meet and review the itinerary and your equipment. Furthermore, if you need anything, I can help you rent it.

So, are you ready for a thrilling mountaineering experience in South America? Then send your request and explore the beautiful Peruvian Andes on this unique adventure. You’ll love every minute of it!

About the guide

Beto Pinto was born to climb giant mountains. Raised in a tiny hamlet in the Shacsha valley outside of Huaraz, he often dreamt of climbing the high peaks which surrounded his countryside home. His first steps he was off trekking and exploring on his own - through remote valleys and high Andean lakes. By age 12, he became the youngest to summit Mt. Vallunaraju (5686m). He next summited Nevado Chopicalqui (6354) at age 14, and by age 15, he stood on top of Nevado Huascaran - the summit he always dreamt of and the highest mountain in Peru. Beto remains the youngest Peruvian to have summited Huascaran.

Beto is licensed as a UIAGM /IFMGA /AGMP Guide, and has WFR certification - this means he is recognized worldwide, and it’s the highest level of guide after 3 years of intensive study and training. He teaches mountain rescue courses to other local guides. He has organized and led the first Peruvian expeditions to the mountains of Ecuador and Bolivia, opening new routes and holding the record time to ascend Mexico’s highest volcano, Pico de Orizaba, in Bolivia Huayna Potosi. Within Peru, he has opened many new routes in various Cordilleras. He is published in The Alpinist, The American Alpine Journal, Desnivel , Barrabes , American Alpine Institute, etc
