For us at Sky High Andes the mountains are a lifestyle. Taking small steps to get to the summit in your dreams. But to get there you have to be prepared. We want to share our knowledge to boost your ability to lead climbs on your own.
Our entry level climbing course is perfect for you to learn basic mountaineering skills and gain confidence on glacier terrain. You will be taught many concepts of mountaineering such as progression on snow and ice using crampons/axes, route finding, roped glacier travel, crevasse rescue. You will develop the skills and confidence to go into the mountains with success and be an integral part of a team.
If you are looking to get to the next level, on steeper mountains, we can make your advanced course a custom fit or a custom mountain!
The main course setting in Cusco is at the Campa base camp, surrounded by Ausangate and the high peaks of the Vilcanota Range. After climbing Campa (5,500m) and practicing our skills, we have close access to several peaks of varying difficulty in the area like Tinke (5,450m), Caracol (5,625m) or Mariposa (5,842m).
In Huaraz the course location is the Ishinca Valley at Tocllaraju or the Paron Valley on Artsesonraju.
