Are you looking for a new mountaineering challenge in a beautiful setting? Join me on this 4-day advanced ascent to Artezon Raju in the Cordillera Blanca, Peru.

This trip is reserved for experience mountaineers, with an excellent fitness level. The ascent to reach the summit of Artezon Raju is highly demanding, yet incredibly rewarding.

Artezon Raju is a peak many climbers put on their bucket list for many reasons. First of all, it has an ideal location in the Santa Cruz Valley, in the Huascaran National Park. So the sceneries you’ll admire, are some of the most breathtaking in the whole country. From the summit, you will get to see other equally impressive peaks, such as the Piramide de Garcilaso, Chacraraju and Pisco. Also its very unique and elegant pyramid shape, has granted it world fame, as it is the inspiration for the Paramount Studios’ logo.

What’s more, you’ll encounter marvellous things along the way. One of the most mesmerizing spots you’ll get to see up close, is a glacier that lies in the heart of the mountain. You will also find different challenges, from mixed terrain, to steep steps. And right before you conquer the summit, you’ll pass through about 200 meters of steep snow and ice. So when you stand at the top of Artezon Raju, breathe in the pure air, and feel like you can touch the coulds, you’ll know all your effort was worth it.

Don’t miss out the opportunity to climb Artezon Raju. Send me a request, and let me help you reach this mountaineering goal.

About the guide

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.
