Day 3:
Climb to the Moraine camp, which is mainly steep terminal moraine with a few sections of easy rock.

Day 4:
Climb to the Col camp at 5300m. (This section can sometimes be the most technical part of the entire climb). The high col is between Alpamayo and it's sister peak, Quitaraju. The guides will fix ropes in advance of the group on one steep section. One fixed rope and two belayed sections are normal in order to reach the col.

Day 5:
Ascent to the summit of Alpamayo, lying at 5947m. The climb starts with a reasonably steep glacier to the bergschrund. There are several steep ice pitches, around 50. The final couple of pitches increase to 70 resulting in grading of around Alpine AD/AD+ or Ice Grade 3. We allow 7 hours to reach the summit. Return to the Col Camp.

Day in reserve in case of bad weather

Return to the base camp.
