Description

The Chopicalqui is the third highest peak of the Huascaran Massif. Thanks to its 6354 meters of altitude, you'll witness the most breathtaking views of the Cordillera Blanca from the summit.

I would like to invite you climb this summit via the classic southwest ridge in 4 days. It involves some technical sections of ice climbing in which you will use ice axes. That is why you will need strong alpine skills as well as a good safety technique to manage crampons and rope on ice walls.

Once we reach to the high camp at 5400 meters you'll understand why the Chopicalqui is one of the favorite mountains for many climbers. And from its summit we can admire many impressive mountains. The Chacraraju, Huandoy, Huascaran and Artesonraju are some of them.

So, what are you waiting for? Contact me now if you want to go for this challenging peak of the Cordillera Blanca!

Disappointed with the whole experience. Didn't climb with Juventino, never met him. Got a different guide. Booked Pisco and Chopicalcui as separate climbs with one day off in between to rest. Agency combined the climbs. They told me to of go from Pisco BC directly to Chopicalcui moraine camp. Got a different guide who didn't tell me that we'll get snowed in at moraine camp. Only found out about the snow once we reached Chopicalcui moraine camp. Spent the night there, next day had to go down. Disappointed rebooked my flight and left Peru. Waste of my time and money.
