Peru Mountaineering   

Peru mountaineeringGranite Arches specializes in Peru mountaineering and offers exceptional quality, professionally guided climbing expeditions to several of the world’s great mountain ranges.  Catering to the needs of both novice and intermediate climbers,  we offer group/scheduled expeditions to Ecuador and Peru. We also offer custom/private ascents  to most peaks in  Peru, Ecuador, Bolivia and Mexico, and the western United States. Group expeditions include Cotapaxi, Alpamayo, Urus, Illiniza Sur, Tocllaraju, and others. Our expeditions are an exceptional value, as they include most expenses and a very low guide-to-client ratio. Finally, because we are a small company, we excel in meeting the special needs of individual clients and can arrange custom expeditions.
