Several factors come into account when trying to reach a summit!

Since we cannot control all of these factors and we sometimes have to turn around before reaching the summit we have decided to maximize the chances for the group the reach a summit. We will attempt three summits in one trip giving three times the chances of success. On top of that we are hoping to offer a series of summits that are accessible to climbers with little or no mountaineering experience.

We have also decided not to push you too hard to allow your body the necessary time to adapt to the alpine environment and the altitude. This way you will be able enjoy your experience at the maximum. You will notice that the daily distances travelled are relatively short. This will leave us plenty of time for resting and taking in the views. On the summit days we will be pushing you a little harder, because after all this is an adventure trip.

To help us transport our equipment to the basecamp we will be using the local muleteer services. As an expedition you will still need to carry some of the equipment; after all it is your experience. We believe it is by actively taking part in the expedition that you will live the full mountaineering experience and fell part of the climbing community.

Preparing meals and organizing food is something that requires lots of time in the mountains. Since everything has to be ready at the right time we will hire a professional Peruvian cook and porter. The cook and porter has received formal training.

From the time you sign up for the trip we will be there to help to make sure are going to be ready for the big day.

This is the perfect acclimatization mountain, because it can be done in a fairly short time. The approach is steep but not very long. The glacier is mostly relatively easy. That more can you ask for a first climb! We do have several challenges to overcome though. We will have to a few short but steep rock sections. The final approach of the summit gets a little steeper. But the summit is outstanding.

This we will experience 360 degrees, that is we will do traverse by going up one route and down another one. Although longer the trek will be easier than that for Urus. To reach the summit we will follow a glacier to reach an almost vertical 12 meter high wall. But don’t worry your guide will help you get past this section. We will then arrive on the summit glacier that finishes with about 100 meters of easy snow at a 55 degree angle.
