Climb Alpamayo with Adventure Consultants!
• Climb one of the world’s most beautiful mountain faces
• Immerse yourself in the local culture and people
• Moderate-altitude mountaineering on technical ground
This mountain is often referred to as the most beautiful mountain in the world with its classic fluted snow slopes descending like fingers from the summit. We ascend via Alpamayo’s Ferarri Route, or the Italian Route, depending on conditions.
The ascent involves moderately steep snow and ice climbing to 70 degrees and expedition members will require a background on this type of terrain prior to joining the trip. We acclimatise on an ascent of 5,686m Vallunaraju before moving to Alpamayo for the ultimate ascent. A technical climbing day takes us to a high camp from where we embark on the steep ice-face to the summit.
We stay in local hotels for initial acclimatisation days, later moving to comfortable Base Camps that are well-catered. Apart from high mountain camp moves, the load-carrying is provided by porters and donkeys. This is a great high-altitude technical adventure!
