Chopicalqui (Ancash Quechua kallki ravine) is a mountain in the Cordillera Blanca (Spanish for "white range") in the Andes of Peru. With a summit elevation of 6,354 meters (20,846 feet) above sea level it is one of the highest peaks of the Cordillera Blanca.
The standard climbing route is the Southwest Ridge, a moderate snow climb that is popular with climbers and can be crowded at times. It possesses a difficulty rating of PD+/AD- on the French System for grading alpine routes but deep snow on the summit slopes causes most failures for parties attempting the ridge.
Other established climbing routes include the following:
- Southeast Ridge (alpine grade TD-).
- East Face Direct (alpine grade TD).
