Highlights

 
  • Spend 7 days ascending the amazing Artesonraju peak.

  • See the gorgeous splendor of the Cordillera Blanca from the mountain's summit.

  • Visit wonderful towns like Cashapampa and Llamacorral.

 
For 7 exciting days, I would like to guide you to the summit of the beautiful, and impressive Artesonraju mountain (6,025m).

There are different routes that can be taken to the top of Artesonraju, and on this adventure we will be scaling the mountain’s northeast face from the Santa Cruz valley. This option of the trip is longer than the 5 day possibility, where we would climb on the southeast face from the Paron valley. Hence giving you extra time to enjoy the spectacular scenery.

The summit of the mountain is definitely the ultimate highlight of this trip. There is nothing quite like standing atop a mountain over six thousand meters tall and gazing at an incredible range like the Cordillera Blanca. However, throughout the trip, you will also have plenty of opportunity to visit some amazing places, including the towns of Huaraz, Cashapampa and Llamacorral.

During the climb, we will be stopping and resting in several different spots on the mountain. Those spots include the Base camp (4,250m),the Morrena camp (5,000m) and the High camp (5,600m). Each one of these spots will provide you exceptional views of the nearby mountains. You may also get lucky and see some of the area’s wildlife, including an Andean condor!

This ascent is challenging. There will be several difficult spots throughout the climb. As a result, participants should have some prior mountaineering experience. You should also be in good physical condition as well.

Are you looking for an unforgettable climbing adventure in the mountains of Peru? Then send me a request, meet me at Huaraz, and let’s start climbing the great Artesonraju’s northeast face. 

I can also lead you to the summit of the great Alpamayo on this 7 day adventure.
