Full of exciting climbing options, the Cordillera Blanca in Peru is an absolute treat for any mountaineer. From intermediate climbers to climbing experts, there are so many climbing options to enjoy that it may be more challenging choosing where to climb than actually climbing!

On this trip, together we will choose the perfect climbing spot in Peru for you. We will discuss everything from your skill level to your personal preferences prior to selecting the right peak. We will also consider weather conditions, snow conditions and other factors well in advance of the beginning of the trip as well.

When it comes to possibilities as to where to climb in the Cordillera Blanca of Peru, the list is as long as it is exciting. Just a few examples of where we can go include the following.

  • Yanapaccha (5,460m)

  • Ishinca (5,530m)

  • Alpamayo (5,947m)

  • Tocclarajulera (6,032m)

  • Pisco (5,752m)

  • Urus Este (5,420m)

  • Artesonraju (6,025m)

Our base for this climbing trip in Peru will be the city of Huaraz. For the purpose of further acclimatization, along with spending some time in Huaraz, we can also take exciting journeys to nearby spots like Lake Churup or Hatun Machay. After you’re properly acclimatized, our climbing adventure can begin!

Needless to say, due to the demanding nature of the peaks you can choose to climb on this trip, participants should be in good physical condition. Furthermore, it is important that your experience and skill level properly matches the peaks you wish to climb.

Alpine climbing in Peru is a thrilling adventure. The views, the atmosphere, the experience is beyond exciting, it is magical. To feel that magic, all you have to do is send us a request. We look forward to guiding you.

Adventure Spirit

Mountain Guide

At Adventure Spirit we provide Rock, Ice and Alpine Experiences. We are based in the Northeast, USA (Winter), and Pacific Northwest, USA (Spring/Summer).

Our guide operations are led by Kel Rossiter. After stints in the military, the corporate world, and a Zen monastery, Kel began pursuing climbing as his professional passion. A Washington native, his first summit was an all-cotton ascent of Mt. Adams (12,281'). Fortunately, he went on to get appropriate training and since then he has climbed and guided rock and ice in twelve different countries on four continents. Now based in Vermont for most of the year, Kel owns and operates Adventure Spirit LLC, a rock, ice, and alpine guide service specializing in Northeastern climbing destinations.

Kel is also active in higher education, serving as a faculty member/instructor at several area colleges and holding a doctoral degree in Educational Leadership & Policy Studies. He has complemented his university studies with American Mountain Guide Association (AMGA) training, having become an IFMGA Mountain Guide.

Kel is an Ortovox Athlete/Guide Ambassador, and he also enjoys bringing the mountain experience to people through writing and has been published in Climbing Magazine, Alpinist, and The Seattle Times, among others. In between his stints in the mountains, Kel serves on the boards of CRAG-VT, Vermont’s climbing access organization and the Vermont Outdoor Guide Association. And though he left the Zen monastery long ago, he still does see the value found in just sitting still.

I was looking for a local guide for a hike I was planning and came across Explore-Share. They seemed to have good reviews and so decided to give them a try. The experience was very positive and completely happy with their service. I will be using them again for next trip.



Easy to set up and find the perfect trip. Informative site that is easy to use. Guides are all great to work with and communicate all arrangements needed. As simple as can be!



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.
