Pisco serves as a great introductory or refresher climb for those with or without previous alpine experience. At 5752 meters above sea level, it is also a great acclimatization peak. Non-technical by nature, the normal route on Pisco Oeste climbs the southwest ridge, offering glorious sunrise views of the Huandoys and a 360 degree summit vista that is considered by many to be the best in the range. Chopicalqui sits across the Llanganuco valley from Pisco and towers above the rest of the peaks in the area, save its colossal neighbor Huascaran. At 6354 meters high, Chopicalqui’s southwest ridge offers a moderate climb with just enough exposure to keep climber’s adrenaline levels up and thereby scaring novice mountaineers away. Chopi’s high camp situated at 5400 meters in the col between Huascaran and itself is an unforgettable place to spend the night as well! With one of the most photogenic summit cones in the range, it’s no wonder that this route is a favorite of many climbers in the area.
