La Esfinge β€” Big Wall Climbing in Peru

For good reason, this group of climbers keeps coming back to explore the big wall climbing found in the Andes mountains near Huaraz, Peru …

It’s surrounded by endless snow-covered peaks with virtually no one around, offering seemingly limitless potential for all styles of alpine exploration. It also doesn’t hurt that it’s home to La Esfinge (The Sphinx)β€”likely Peru’s largest big wall: over 3,000 feet tall and situated at 17,470 feet.

In this film, join these climbers as they embark on overnight journey up the Original Route established in 1985 on this impressive wall; including a battle with some less-than-ideal weather, a bit of loose rock, and some exciting off-route wandering.
