Climb one of the highest mountains in Peru after acclimatizing on Pisco Mountain. Two world class climbs in Peru’s Cordillera Blanca.
Cordillera Blanca Classic Climbs is an exciting, well-balanced itinerary combining ascents of two beautiful and popular peaks: Pisco 5752m and Chopicalqui 6354m.
The expedition is particularly suitable for those who have done alpine routes before. We highly recommend to allow yourself enough time to acclimate to the altitude. We warm up on Pisco and our main climbing objective is Chopicalqui which provides an excellent snow climb with the most challenging summit day. The most difficult section involves at least three to four rope length of 50° to 65° snow/ice climbing at an altitude of over 6000m. Conditions on the mountains in 2019 were excellent, with most teams summiting on all the peaks included in this itinerary.
