PERU CLIMBING AND EXPEDITIONS
We offer a variety of Peru climbing & mountaineering adventure expeditions including:
*Climbing instruction from beginner to experienced climbers
*Cordillera Blanca climbing summits suitable for beginners
CLIMBING WITH OUR COMPANY MEANS:
*Professional qualified and licensed guides
*High guide to client ratio
Acclimatisation: It is very important that you are well acclimatised to the altitude before attempting any peaks in the Cordillera Blanca so you will avoid possible problems with lack of energy or altitude sickness when climbing. Climbing above 5000m is physically demanding, even if the climbing is easy, not steep, or technical.
We always recommend to do a trek of minimum 4 to 6 days for a good acclimatization and extra fitness. If you looking to climb a 6000m or technical peaks we recommend a warm up climb of a 5000m peak for extra acclimatization and for your maximum enjoyment and safety.
Support while climbing: All climbs are guided by a qualified & licensed UIAGM International Mountain Guide; From 2 or 3 clients depending on mountain difficulty, there will be at least one assistant mountain guide. Donkeys and horses carry equipment to Base Camps & climbs up to the high camps are supported by porters who carry tents, equipment and food, but you need to carry your own personal clothes and climbing gear up to high camps.
Safety: all our Climbing Groups are organized so that in the event of an accident, illness or tiredness there are always plenty of qualified climbing staff on the mountain to help a rescue and / or evacuate clients safely back down the mountain with an aspirant, porter or assistant guide while other members of the climbing team will continue with their climb in safety if they wish to do so.
Climbing Grading: The climbing grading described in our program is an indication only of the level of difficulty. Even easy climbs for beginner are graded medium to hard to reflect that the altitude in the mountain makes climbing on any peak physically demanding.
We have Mountain Climbing for beginners through to technical climbing for more experienced climbers.
