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)

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.

What people are saying about Adventure Spirit


Our guide did a great job, he was able to ease us into ice and provide some challenging routs as our experience progressed. He was extremely knowledgable, safe and fun to climb with. We took time to do some anchor building activities too. We didn't get do multi pitch because of all the snow but that just means we have more reason to come back. Next time!


THANKS again for a great trip!! A fantastic experience and invaluable in so many different ways. It was a pleasure to meet you. After one short experience you have become my go to guy in the Northeast. I am looking forward to many more adventures.  


Just a BIG thank you for the 5 stars climbing day. I loved every minute of it and the technical info, the patience, the attention to safety and all of the beta. I was very exited last year when I saw the ice by the road and so glad you made it come alive today! What a day!  


Last year in March myself and my brother Max climbed Mt Mansfield (Vermont) with one of your guides. It was an incredible day and probably the highlight of my trip home on leave.


I just wanted to take a moment to say thank you for this summer’s experiences. Frost Valley YMCA Adventure Trips utilized your guiding service throughout the summer, and each time they were met with professional and friendly guides. The guides, in my experience, are what really make the activities fun. When my kids come back chatting about how great climbing was and how awesome the guides were, I know I have found a worthwhile organization. Without your guides this summer, my kids would have missed out on a lot of opportunities. From the patience in pushing them to stretch beyond their limits and comforts to just sitting back laughing and having conversations with them, your guides have touched each of these campers in a positive way. So, thank you for all you have done for us this summer, and I look forward to rebooking with you next summer. —L. McLain, Adventure Director, Frost Valley YMCA
