This mountaineering course gives new and budding climbers the skills and techniques needed for Andean mountaineering holidays.

After four days at glacier school the trip ends with a technical climb of Yanapaqcha, supervised if needed, in the Cordillera Blanca, near Huaraz, northern Peru.

We aim to prepare participants with little or no mountaineering experience to look at the many hazards that snow covered mountains present and how to plan conquering a peak, and systematically teach these skills and techniques.

Areas covered:

Hypothermia treatment and prevention, Route finding, Crevasse rescue, Rope team travel, Snow and ice anchors, Belay systems, Climbing knots, Glaciology, Self-arrest, Top-rope management and an introduction to vertical ice climbing, Summit preparation & alpine starts, summit climb.

We can extend the services offered to include all transport and accommodation from, and back to, Lima (12, days total).

With your new skills why not extend your time in the mountains by climbing other nearby peaks, guided or unguided, Pisco and Chopicalqui can easily be added on.

We have three day mountaineering courses in Peru and other Andean countries.
