Aspirant guides from Huaraz on their way to Bolivia for international expedition

D uring Friday´s press conference at the Casa de Guías the local press were given more details about the international mountaineering expedition that is set up for sixth grade students of the High Mountain Study Centre (IESTP – CEAM). The expedition will be led by Magno Camones and Héctor Vidal who are professional mountain guides and work for the Casa de Guías.

The purpose of this group is to contribute to the mountaineering of Bolivia and reach new summits in the Real Mountain Range. Additionally it´s important for the participants to absorb the Bolivian culture and traditions, as well as to discover and understand the potential that the Cordillera Real (Real Mountain Range) has to offer.

The expedition started on the 5th and will last until the 19th of March and counts with a number of enthusiastic young lads that hope to conclude their studies this year and thus becoming professional mountain guides. Héctor Figueroa, Juan Caldua, Michel Henostroza, Lucio Huayhua, Fredy Lliuya, Jack Sierralta, Houston Salazar, Miguel Vargas and William Vargas are hoping to conquer the Nevado Condoriri (5,648 masl), Nevado Small Alpamayo (5350 masl) and the Nevado Huayna Potosí (6080 masl). The highest mountain on their list is the Sajama Vulcan at 6542 masl. This climb is expected to take four days and is located approximately at 320 km from the Bolivian capital La Paz.

Besides the climbing, the group will also seek for strategic alliances between Bolivian and Peruvian institutions such as Casa de Guías and to promote the city of Huaraz being mountaineering capital of Peru.
