    Located in the Northern Andes, the Cordillera Blanca of Peru is one the world’s foremost mountaineering arenas. The breathtaking pyramids of snow and ice that make up ‘The Blanca,’ as it’s respectfully referred to, soar up to 22,200′ and contain more than 30 peaks over 18,000′ tall. Due to the fact that these grandiose mountains are so easy to access, our expeditions to this region enjoy more time climbing in the alpine zone and learning mountaineering skills and less time on the approach to base camp. We will aim to climb Urus (~17,900′), Ishinca (~18,200′) Tocllaraju (~20,000′) and Ranrapalca (~20,000′). The ultimate goal of the expedition will be for students to be leading the summit bids on these glaciated peaks and to learn the skills needed to lead similar expeditions on their own.

    Highlights:

    • Technical climbing up to ~20,000 feet
    • Emphasis on glacier travel and rescue techniques
    • Snow and alpine ice climbing
    • Leadership skills for outdoor educators
