Peru Team Moving Up on Pisco

Two mountaineers navigating a glacier on a Gasherbrum II Expedition

We just got word that the Pisco/Chopicalqui team is settled in at Pisco’s Cave Camp. They’ve spent the last 2 days acclimatizing in the Llanganuco Valley below the peak, going out on day hikes and doing skills training. Today the team moved up to the grassy hanging valley immediately below the moraine and glacier of Pisco’s South Face. The group is strong and enjoying good weather. Tomorrow they’ll do another full day of glacier skills practice before moving up to their high camp at the edge of the glacier in preparation for their summit push! Stay tuned….
