Alpamayo and Quitaraju

Technical Climbs on Peru’s Most Beautiful Peaks

Get your game on for some of the Cordillera’s finest tech­ni­cal routes. Clas­sic ice routes, tech­ni­cal rock climbs and mixed routes are plen­ti­ful in the amaz­ing Cordillera Blan­ca. Alpa­mayo stands out amongst the finest in the range and offer strong inter­me­di­ate lev­el climbers a tech­ni­cal ice route not to be missed! And if this spec­tac­u­lar climb weren’t enough, from our Alpa­mayo high camp we’ll also attempt the north face of Quitara­ju, with it’s more than 2,000 feet / 610 meters of near per­fect snow and ice con­di­tions. Join Moun­tain Mad­ness as we climb two of the Cordillera Blanca’s most sought-after peaks set among one of the most beau­ti­ful alpine sites in the world.
