Exclusive mountain climbing program "Climbing Ranrapalca Normal Route" with MCS AlexClimb Guides

As a climbing guide, I have long and very close relationship with this mountain. We climbed Ranrapalca for the first time in 2013 by the Classic North-East route. After that, there were several more successful and unsuccessful attempts. I can say that among the technical routes of the central part of the Cordillera Blanca, Ranrapalca is one of the most striking and structurally unusual peaks of the area, a very worthy and difficult goal for climbing. And it is just a very beautiful mountain.

Like many neighboring peaks, Ranrapalca was identified by the aborigines as the concentration point of higher powers and was deified in local cults dedicated to Mother Nature. In the Quechua language, the name Ranrapalca means, "Rock divided in two"

Ranrapalca is one of the most difficult climbing objects of the Ishinca Gorge; the rocky verticals of the North-West Face attract the strongest climbers from all over the world. The southeastern side and the inaccessible western ridge are still waiting for their pioneers-climbers.

However, even the “standard” Classic route to the summit of Ranrapalca is not so easy (and it becomes more difficult every year), even compared to the most rated routes to neighboring mountains. Now, there are at least 3 climbing lines to the top of Ranrapalca - “Classic” along the North-east ridge, and some super difficult routes along the North-West Face.

This 8-day program "Mountain climbing in Cordillera Blanca, Peru, climbing Nevado Ranrapalca" is designed for people who have prior experience in mountain climbing and who want to try themselves at technical mountain climbing route. That is highly recommended to attach to the Ranrapalca climbing program the acclimatization part - climbing easier mountains as Ishinca, Urus or Tocllaraju. Regardless your climbing experience, we recommend the Course of general physical preparation and passing MCS AlexClimb Course of Mountain Technique (basic level) before participating in this program.

Our Principles

AlexClimb Rule #1 - Safety First

From the very beginning of our activity, here nearly 16 years, the first Principle of work of School of mountaineering and rock-climbing of MCS AlexClimb is the Safety Priority. On the basis of this Principle all process of training is based, all programs and rounds are developed and carried out only within this main principle. We consider that at professional approach to development of programs, at personal discipline and correctly put motivation - occupations by mountaineering and rock-climbing are COMPLETELY safe. And from the return - all troubles and accidents in our sport come from nonprofessionalism, from ignorance or neglect by elementary standards of safety, from irrational motivation, from revaluation of own forces and opportunities. All these prerequisites we COMPLETELY EXCLUDE in our work - ours Rock-climbing, Ice climbing and Mountaineering are based on one Principle - the Safety Priority. In rock-climbing, mountaineering and ice climbing, the Priority of Safety of MCS AlexClimb-is your personal security and comfort irrespective of, than we are engaged - we train muscles and we work technology of the movement in the sports hall and on the rock climbing wall, we make the way through snowstorm to top or we relax on golden sand of the Caribbean beach after hot day of trainings on rocks. The Safety priority - the main credo of School of mountaineering and rock-climbing of MCS AlexClimb.

AlexClimb Rule #2 - Leave No Trace

Closely interacting with Nature, working with the active programs in mountains, woods, lakes and rivers, we perfectly understand the importance of carefull and respectfull bahavior towards the Nature, for its resources. From the very beginning of our outdoor-activity we adopted rules of  Leave No Trace technique - the standard of behavior of the person accepted in all the civilized world in relation to environment and especially - to the wild nature. After all on the relation of people to the nature near which they exist, itself can draw dalekoidushchy conclusions on the relation of these people to... Where and as we didn't travel - we don't reserve any garbage, we try to reduce whenever possible our influence on environment to a minimum. We clear earlier zagryazyonny tourist parking of the left garbage, we take out and we take out to utilization places that to us other people left there. We consider that only thus, at personal individual consciousness of each citizen, each tourist, climber or autotraveller, we will be able to keep the nature surrounding us in its state, natural, suitable for life, - in it pledge of the healthy future for ourselves and our children.

AlexClimb Rule #3 - Sober Concious

The position of AlexClimb Mountain and rockclimbing School regarding healthy lifestyle is quite clear - we consider that only sober consciousness is capable to fill sincere emotions,  to sympathize, to enjoy life in all its variety. Bright various enjoyable life is possible only on condition of keeping the absolute sobriety and purity of consciousness. Any way of obscuring our perception of reality is intended to do harm to our consciousness and bring harm to our physical health, to replace the true values by false ones, to destroy us physically - to turn us into flabby, weak, senseless, gray herd with empty hazy eyes. We don't force anybody to our point of view, everyone has a God's gift of making his own choice and to destroy himself if that is what he wants... But in AlexCilimb Mountain Climbing School we accept quite certain and very simple set of rules: neither alcohol, nor drugs.
