Climbing Chopicalqui Climb - Cordillera Blanca

Summit: 6354 meter (20.846 ft)
Difficulty: moderate (F)
Duration expedition Huaraz - Gipfel - Huaraz: 5 days

Good to combine with Pisco and Mount Yanapaccha (5460). Chopicalqui combined with Pisco takes 7-8 days, Huaraz - Pisco - Chopicalqui - Huaraz.
Comment: Very fit people can climb Chopicalqui also in only 4 days by going from the base camp immediately to camp 2 and perhaps on the summit day return to the base camp rather than the high camp.
