Route: Climbing Nevado Copa
Availability: June - August
Nevado Copa is one of the most beautiful mountains of the Cordillera Blanca and attracts much attention in Huaraz. It is famous for being the easiest 6000+ mountain to climb in the Cordillera Blanca and, even though it has many crevices to cross or negotiate, it still offers an impressive southern side, with couloirs and sections of rock and ice ridges. This mountain definitely is a good choice for new openings.
We recommend you to do at least a 1-Day hike in altitude to be acclimatized before doing this tour.
