A real challenge led by Quique, a local IFMGA mountain guide. Climb with him the Chopicalqui mountain in a 3-to-4-day expedition via its southwest ridge.
Imagine the immensity of this mountain that it can be seen from the Portachuelo de Llanganuco pass. The Chopicalqui summit is undoubtedly a unique climbing opportunity for those who love high adventures.
The Chopicalqui is the third highest peak of the Huascarán massif, located in the Peruvian Cordillera Blanca. It is also the fifth highest mountain in the province of Yungay and the fourth of the entire mountain range.
It will be a 3 or 4 day expedition in which you must climb on ice. I think it is a unique experience full of emotions, effort and rewarding feelings. We will reach its summit by the southwestern crest with the plus of finding really deep snow.
Once you are at more than 6000 meters high, you won’t believe such a spectacular view. The Huascaran, Chacraraju, Huandoy and the Pisco mountains are some of the main stars of the scenery.
The round trip, up to the Chopicalqui summit and down, will take 3 or 4 days. This ascent is suitable for climbers with some prior experience. In addition, a good fitness level is also mandatory.
So, if you are ready to live this unique adventure, please get in touch with me. As your guide, I will do my best to make you reach that summit in a fun and safe way!

Had a great time, felt safe with certified guide.
Our guide, Quique. was top notch. I have used guides all over the world and he stands out in his knowledge, professionalism and kindness. I hope to try and use him in the future. In the mountains, one must adjust to changing conditions and he did so quickly and competently. Besides being one of the nicest people I have ever met, his skills in the mountains cannot be doubted.

It is with great pleasure that I recommend Quique as an exceptional choice in managing a safe, enjoyable and successful mountaineering adventures in the high mountains. Whether it be glacier travel, technical rock or alpine climbing, trekking or cultural and historically significant site visits, Quique always provided excellent guidance and enjoyment were ever we went. I have known Quique for over 10 years and have climbed and trekked with Quique on two continents and three countries. We have climbed 20 mountains over 5000 meters together exceeding 6000 meters several times. Quique has always amazed me at his ability to find new and unique places to explore and visit. If you are considering using Quique for your next adventure you have made an excellent choice.
