Enjoy an unforgettable high altitude mountaineering course, Cordillera Blancas, Peru.This high altitude mountaineering course is designed to give you the skills to climb high altitude peaks and prepare you for climbing on technical terrain at these altitudes. We will be instructing and reviewing the following climbing techniques: glacier travel, ice/snow climbing techniques, crevasse rescue, multi-pitch climbing, snow climbing, short roping, ice/snow anchors, belay techniques, rappelling, glacier navigation, route finding, and decision making. Additional topics to be covered or experienced: proper acclimatization, pace, knowing when to turn back, weather considerations, alpine starts, mountain medicine, judgment, and hazard evaluation.

We will attempt 2-3 peaks between 18,000 ft. and 21,000 ft. in the Blancas depending on local conditions, group skill level, and as our time allows. Possible options to be attempted: Pisco (18,866 ft.), Huandoy Este (19,909 ft.), Chipicalqui (20,841 ft.). Other peaks and climbs may be substituted due to climbing conditions. While an excellent pre-course for the Huascaran Expedition (22,205 ft.) this is a great introduction to climbing in the Peruvian Andes with ascents of peaks over 18,000 ft., all the while learning advanced climbing techniques and how to be safe at high altitude.
