Timing: 4 days Climbing
Grade: moderate

Pisco is an excellent choice for first time mountaineers and as an acclimatization peak for climbers going on to higher Peruvian peaks. For keen trekkers and people acclimatized and with no, or limited, experience on snow and ice, this is a must.

This is a 4 day guided climbing trip surrounded by beautiful high mountains like Huascaran, Huandoy, Chopicalqui, with a tremendous view of the Chacraraju from the summit.
Before attempting Pisco we suggest that you do at least 4 days for a good acclimatization and fitness.

Day 1: Huaraz – Cebollapampa – Pisco base Camp, We drive from Huaraz to Cebollapampa. Then our gear is loaded onto the donkeys and we climb on a good path up to Pisco Base Camp (4650m). There is a Refuge there where you can buy beer, and wine.

Day 2: Pisco campo base – Moraine camp
We climb to Moraine Camp (4900m). The donkeys cannot come this way so we need to carry our kit and you will have to carry your personal gear such as clothes and sleeping bag, help carrying the tents and food would also be appreciated.

Dad 3: Summit Day
We climb for 40 minutes on moraine until we reach the glacier where we’ll put on crampons and rope up. From here, it’s about 5 hours to the summit. There is one short steep section of around 4m, but the rest of the way is not very steep or difficult. From the summit we’ll be able to take in fantastic close views of Huascarán (6768m), Chopicalqui (6354m), Huandoy (6160m), Pirámide (5885m), Artesonraju (6025m). Then we descend to Moraine Camp, collect our gear and return to base camp.

Día 4: Pisco Base camp – Cebollapampa – Huaraz; Walk down to Cebollapampa and return to Huaraz.
