maybe some one for this mountain this year?

if that Beauty is also your dream we can cut our cost in half (1.5t $ instead of 3t $ ) . I'm looking at July term.

Having done Alpamayo a few years back I can confirm it is a great mountain, incredibly beautiful however that schedule looks a little tight to me unless you are already well acclimatized (done at least another peak of 5,000m before Alpamayo).  The summit is never guaranteed but you would stand far more chance with a couple of extra slush days built in to mitigate for bad weather, or simply to aid acclimatization.  If you are spending that amount of money they you want to give yourself the best chance possible.

The itinerary also mentions the Ferrari Route?  Because it is less steep than French Direct, Ferrari Route holds a lot of snow, often with fearsome looking cornices at the top which are prone to collapse resulting in many deaths over the years.  French Direct is the steeper but safer option.  Go for it, its a great objective and make sure your guide is a full member of the AGMP so you know they won't cut corners.

Adventure Peaks used to do it but don't seem to any more.  Jagged Globe still do:  https://www.jagged-globe.co.uk/climb/exp/i/alpamayo.html

Personally though if doing something similar again I would probably just go straight to the horses mouth and ask on here:


Same guides that JG/AP will be using most probably.
