Summer in South America

Weather is a huge factor when planning logistics for international expeditions. Fortunately our recent Alpamayo (19,512′ / 5,947m) expedition had the most ideal conditions for their climb! The team reached the summit in full sun and had the mountain to themselves with perfect weather. Join us next summer, the dates for the Alpamayo & Quitaraju expedition are July 1-15, 2018!

In July we also had two private personal trips in Peru for Alpenglow guides/owners, Adrian Ballinger and Logan Talbott. Logan had a great time in Peru and climbed Alpamayo and Artesonraju with his climbing partner, Eric. In the Cordillera Blanca Adrian, and his girlfriend Emily Harrington, did some sport climbing, alpine climbing, and skiied Tocllaraju. Overall a successful and exciting month!

This Saturday we have another trip headed to Bolivia to climb three peaks: Pequeño Alpamayo (17,482′ / 5329m), Huayna Potosi (19,975′ / 6088m), and Illimani (21,125′ / 6439m) over two weeks from July 29- August 13.
