We will meet up in Huraz and then drive between 1 to 2 hours to Pashpa or Collon. From there, we will trek for 3-4 hours to our base camp and enjoy the stunning scenery on the way.
After an early wake up call at 4am we will set off to the Urus Summit. This will be a challenging ascent with steep ridges, ice and snow. The prize will be watching the sun rise over the surrounding mountains a few hours later. Then, we will begin the steep descent. In total we will trek aprox. 7 hours.
A light trekking day will take us to Ishinca where we will set up camp for the night.
Another early rise at 3am to start up to the Ishinca Summit. Depending on the fitness level of participants we will either climb the north or the east face of the summit. Then we will head back to the base camp after a 9-10 hour trekking day.
We will take the day to rest and prepare for Tocllaraju.
A challenging climb will take us to the moraine below the glacier at Morena camp. We will set up camp there and prepare for an early rise the next day.
Our long trekking day will begin at 1 or 2am. We will set off at an easy pace for a couple of hours until we reach Morena Camp. Then we will continue on to a crevasse that can be crossed by a snowbridge. As we approach the exposed summit climb the ascent will become progressively steeper and harder. Then we will return to base camp for our last night in the mountains.
A steady trek will take us back to Collon. Finally, we will drive back to Huaraz.
Maximum participants: 15
