CLIMB SUMMARY

Thank you for photograph contribution to this page by Jelmer Brinkman, Lent, Netherlands and Bryan Kevan, Berkeley, CA, USA.

Climb summary by our Legendary Mountains co-author, Ties Arts, Bussum, Netherlands.

This is the world’s longest climb, starting at Paramonga at almost sea level and going up, all paved, to Lagunas Conococha at 4101 meters above sea level.

 The first half of the climb is ‘easy’ and almost never come above 3 to 4%. The second half is steeper and has many switchbacks to crawl up to the Lagunas. It never gets too steep (seldom above 10%). But with the higher altitude and long distance already in the legs this part becomes harder and harder.

 

Jelmer Brinkman, and others from the Netherlands, made this fantastic climb in 2013. Kevan Bryan from California made the trip in July, 2019.

Their amazing story to overcome this long distance climb challenge and realize the promise of Father (Frans) and his son(Jeroen) is published by soigneur. An amazing story:  https://soigneur.nl/stories/longest-climb-2/
