Altitude 5500m a.s.l
Descending from high camp on Chopicalqui © robgixer
The most common route is the SW ridge. 3 camps usually. The upper ridge is quite straightforward but can become impassable due to powder snow.
Take the collectivo from Huaraz to Caraz and then the collectivo / taxi into the mountains towards the standard route on Pisco. The approch to Chopa starts on a left hand bend before the road starts to snake upwards.
|I think height of this should be 6354 m. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chopicalqui|
