Transfer by bus from Huaraz to the village of Pashpa (3500m). We start trekking through a path along the edge of the mountain, from which you can see the Copa and the,Huascaran in the north. The Quebrada Ishinca begins with a wood of Quenoals,(a typical tree of the Cordillera Blanca). It is deep and progressive and helps you to discover the superb landscapes around the Ishinca valley. We then cross a plain and reach
the Ishinca base camp which is just below a mountainous cirque.
The climb up to Camp 1 begins at the bottom of the valley, on the left, by a
straight and stony path which leads up to the spur of ice. We continue on the
edge of the glacier and reach Camp 1 (Morrena Camp) which is next to granite rocks. We enjoy a beautiful
view of the sunset and of Copa mountain.
We cross a large glacier with crevasses and then take the north-west crest which
leads to the bottom of a pyramid where we discover the rimaye and a 60m-section which is very steep and technical with a slope of 55° . Then we reach the easy
summital crest which leads to the summit. Abseil down, return to Camp 1 and
descent to Ishinca Base Camp.
