It is official. My midlife crisis has just sky-rocketed to a whole new level. The travel bug all started with a hiking trip to Kilimanjaro in 2010, and for quite some time after my idea of travelling consisted of a tick box exercise of the latest bucket list of things to do before the grand […]
Following up on our 2016 favourite images post from last week, we thought we’d give you a few personal highlights from our team located around the world and our favourite Project Cordillera moments. Although many of us haven’t met and we all lead very different lives, there’s one thing we will always have in common: our […]
It’s hard to believe 2016 has been and gone already. It’s been a strange one, no one can deny that. But, we’ve worked hard this year and it’s paid off; 2016 was another successful year for us at Project Cordillera.

Glimpses of Adventure. Check out Project Cordillera’s first foray into film making! Over the next few weeks we’ll be releasing more short films to help get your blood pumping for a big Peruvian adventure this summer.
We obviously prefer the Andes (better weather, better conditions, more accessible, less bureaucracy, etc, etc.). However, credit where credit is due, the Himalayas are pretty spectacular too, as this video shows.
Sometimes life puts an obstacle in your path. Sometimes small, little things that can be easily overcome. Sometimes bigger and sometimes unexpected. Sometimes you can see them coming from miles away and sometimes you inexplicably fall into them. Travelling condenses this down to a barrage of nuisances. Mountaineering then reduces it to an almost binary […]
Myself and Willy, prior to our ascent of Yanapaqcha’s West Face. There are occasions in ones life when one really doesn’t know what they are doing.
