Mount Alpamayo (5957 m / 19539 ft)

Alpamayo is one of the most beautiful icy peaks in the Peruvian Andes, known worldwide of its stunning runnels that inspire climbers to come from all over the world. The difficulties of this mountain are not what brings attention to its peak, but rather the location and magnificent setting among the everlasting snowcapped mountains of the Cordillera Blanca. We will climb the well-known Ferrari route on the beautiful Southwest face of the mountain.

For experienced climbers, only!
