Mountaineering School In South America

So I'm planning on spending several months in South America starting sometime starting next month and I've been wanting to take a Mountaineering course for some time now. I've summited several non technical mountains (Mount Adams and Dragontail Peak in Washington State and Mount Rinjani in Indonesia), but I would really like to learn the skills necessary to take on more advanced mountains independently. I've been looking at a couple of programs in South America: ...

Looking for partners - Aconcagua (Feb. 2015)

Hi everyone,

I am going to travel (alone) in South America at the beginning of 2015. I would like to attempt the ascension of the Aconcagua in february 2015. Multiple agencies propose a package, but the prices are way too expensive. Moreover, the route is not technical (no need to hire a guide) and the main difficulty of the expedition is the lack of oxygen due to the altitude.

Also I don't want to go ...

Unfortunately, I will travel by myself and I am looking for partners (a group of 3, including me, would be perfect). The idea is to rent some equipment at El Chalten (if needed) and then do the trek.

You can contact me through summitpost or ...

Cordillera Blanca Climbing Course-July 2014

I'm travelling to Huaraz and hoping to do a 6 day mountaineering course around 20th July 2014 and am looking for one or two others to join the group in order to make it feasible. Have climbed in this range quite a few times but looking to develop more skills so that I can be more independent in these mountains when I return each year. This link gives an idea of what would be ...

Two Italians missing on Alpamayo


Missing since Saturday 31st of May. Helicopter has been out twice as far as I know, with no success. Unfortunately, I know these guys quite well, having climbed with them a number of times over the last couple of years. Two of them have made it back safely to BC, two are still missing.
