Tocllaraju Expedition

Tocllaraju expeditionBrief Description:  Our expedition to Tocllaraju is between 14 and 17 days long.  First, we attempt Urus (5400 meters) and/or Ishinka (5600 meters) for acclimatization purposes. We then attempt one of the most aesthetic climbs in the mountaineering world, the Northwest Ridge of  Tocllaraju. This  6000 meter mountain is a stunningly beautiful, challenging ascent. 

Dates:  Parties of three or more can contact Granite Arches with date preferences and arrange a trip.  Individuals can either schedule their own custom dates, or can participate in a previously scheduled expedition (see "Dates" at right).  The climbing season is mid May to mid August.
