We had a great trip to Peru! Climbing Alpamayo is an experience of a lifetime and our team of four climbers and two guides had a fantastic trip, definitely evident by the smiles in all the pictures they sent us. Chad and Jaime guided Alpenglow climbers Heather, Alasdair, Charles, and Todd up Alpamayo and helped them successfully enjoy an authentic Peruvian climbing experience complete with delicious homemade food, donkeys, trips to Huaraz and Lima, and of course, climbing.
The Cordillera Blanca is one of the most unique climbing areas in the world because it is super densely packed with jagged high peaks that make for great rock and ice climbing. This trip was made up of climbers who have all been building their climbing experience for a number of years, and most of whom we have climbed with in other areas of the world. The conditions on this trip were good but challenging at times. We are stoked that they had a successful Alpamayo adventure and we also want to say a huge thanks to guides Chad and Jaime for photos, and also to Heather and Todd for sending us their photos. Climb on!
