Peruvian Mountain Rescue Association

Socorro Andino Peruano S.A.C For accidents in Cordillera Blanca and Cordillera Huayhuash.

Peruvian Mountain Rescue Association, the first private rescue team in Huaraz, was founded on January 2nd, 2018. We function to provide help and relief with accidents occuring within Huascaran National Park “Cordillera Blanca” also in the Cordillera Huayhuash, Huaraz, Ancash - Peru.

We have now grown to include 35 qualified mountain rescue members representing Huaraz, Peru. Our scope of rescue includes the Cordillera Blanca and Cordillera Huayhuash: these areas are the capital of the adventures, hiking, treks and expeditions in Peru. The main concern of Peruvian Mountain Rescue Association – Socorro Andino Peruano this past year has been one of safety and safety education in all aspects of mountaineering and mountain related sports.

Peruvian Mountain Rescue teams: We are striving to improve public safety programs and provide help to public programs with little experience. Considerable concern has been expressed over the caliber of instructors teaching mountaineering in clubs and summer camps, the feeling being that we should be improving our “ability to teach” just as decidedly as we are improving the content of the courses.

Technical Rope Rescue


Team member training continues to be a significant demand on our member’s time but it is essential to ensuring that we have members who are competent, confident and able to deal with an increasingly different variety of search and rescue tasks where we are asked to attend.

Each year, we typically run 07 days worth of training that has to cater for new Team members all the way through to senior Team members who have a wealth of experience and training behind them. What we actually train is driven by the nature of the incidents we attend.

Over the last few years the Technical Rope Rescue training has been successfully rolled out and it is at a level now where we are much less dependent on a limited number of people with the key skills. The publication of our Technical Rope Rescue Field Guide has also had an impact on Team members and it is gratifying to see the small booklet being looked in a variety of different situations. There are plans for a version 2 of the Field Guide.

However, the infrequently used Technical Rope Rescue (SAP) skills still require more practice so that we can be fully effective; every year the peruvian mountain guides have a safety and mountain rescue course at the beginning of the climbing season in the months of March or April. It is useful for us to foster these types of meetings because there are occasions when we have to operate together.
