Description

Live an unforgettable experience and climb two 6,000m peaks in the Cordillera Blanca on this 7-day program. Follow me to the summit of Ranrapalca and Tocllaraju!

Situated in the Cordillera Blanca and the Huascaran National Park, Ranrapalca (6,162 meters) and Tocllaraju (6,034 meters) are two iconic popular mountains in the Peruvian Andes. On this 7-day program, we’ll take the north face route to Ranrapalca and the west face to Tocllaraju. The first face requires 800 meters of climbing and steep sections along the way. As for the second one, we’ll face 600 meters of climbing and a mixed pitch route on the way.

Due to the technical challenges of these ascents,  this program is for experienced climbers with an excellent level of fitness and prior ice climbing knowledge. Of course, I will be there to help and guide you. 

So, does this adventure to the 6,000m peaks in the Cordillera Blanca sound exciting? Then get in touch with me by sending the request to make your reservation. You won’t regret your choice!

Otherwise, you can join me to the summit of the great Huascaran!
