Pisco Oeste Climb – Pictures

The Peru Team would like to share with you some pictures from their successful Pisco Climb. These fantastic views are considered by many climbers to be the best in the White Range.

Enjoy!

1. Sunrise. The Huandoy mountains in the background.

2. One of the two Alpine Ascents rope teams nearing the summit of Pisco Oeste

3. The view to the north from the Pisco summit. The pointy pyramids on the center left are Alpamayo and Artesonraju.

4. The view to the south. From left to right: Chopicalqui, Huascaran Sur and Huascaran Norte.

5. The Alpine Ascents team at the summit. Sharon, John, Nico and Paul.

 

Great expedition. Good group of people, great guides and great weather resulted in great success. All 4 peaks submitted. 100% success on Chopi which I think is a first for Alpine Ascents.
