Why Climb With Us

Why Climb in Peru with Alpine Ascents?

Schedule Flexibility

Important to the success and enjoyment for our climbers is the ability to adjust our climbing schedules as needed to account for ever-changing mountain conditions. Rather than throwing up our hands ending an expedition when a route may become unclimbable, we treat these situations as challenges. Thanks to our experience and local expertise, we can change locations mid-expedition if necessary and offer alternate climbs and adventures. When such occasions have arisen, our climbers regularly praise these adjustments as highlights of their expeditions.

Experience

We have been guiding in Peru for the past decade and have consistently run expeditions from year to year. Our familiarity with the region, combined with our expertise and knowledge around the world, lend a depth and richness to every expedition that we feel is unrivaled in the guiding community.

Recent Expedition Success

Our previous four climbs were led by Jose Luis Peralvo. 2016 was a fantastic season with high success all around (you can view our last expedition’s cybercast here). Jose made some itinerary and logistics improvements in our continued efforts to fine-tune our program. We look for similar success in 2017 with Jose Luis at the helm.

As always we highly encourage you to contact former climbers.

Overall the trip was outstanding. The climbs themselves combined with the culture made for a very enjoyable vacation. The guides were very professional, fun and easy to get a long with. The logistics were seamless. I felt like I was in good hands at all times.
