Climbing in big mountain environments at elevations above 5,000m, requires disciplined personal preparation, group expedition planning, diverse technical mountaineering skills and glacier terrain assessment, travel & rescue skills. This 3-credit classwill focus on critical safety & technical mountaineering skill fundamentals: proper clothing & climbing equipment, multi terrain hiking & climbing skills, proactive acclimatization & altitude sickness prevention and glacial terrain travel assessment skills. Location: This two week course will take place in the rugged mountains of the Cordillera Blanca in Peru, South America. Our classroom & expedition will be based in the high mountain city of Huaraz, where we’ll begin skill instruction and complete expedition food & transportation planning. Possible climbs from our basecamp in the Ishinca valley include Ishinca (18,143), Tocclaraju (19,790) and Urus Este (17,782). Each of these objectives provides significant opportunities to learn, refine and practice mountain travel and climbing skills.
