Alpenglow’s Peru Season Begins!

Two mountaineers navigating a glacier on a Gasherbrum II Expedition

For the fourteenth year in a row, Alpenglow’s guides will be leading groups on the peaks of the Cordillera Blanca of Peru. The season begins tomorrow with lead guide Jaime Avila meeting the Pisco and Chopicalqui group in Lima. These two peaks are a great next step to our introductory high altitude climbs. Each of the mountains require three camps as the team moves up from the green valleys to the moraines and ultimately onto huge crevassed glaciers. Pisco is first, famous for its stellar views of the entire Blanca range. Stay tuned for dispatches from the mountain!
