Transfer by bus to the village of Pashpa (3500m). Start of the trek by a path along the edge of the mountain from which you can see the Copa and theHuascaran mountains in the north. The Quebrada Ishinca begins with a wood of Quenoals (a typical tree of the Cordillera). The path is deep and progressive and helps you to discover the superb landscapes around the Ishinca. We then cross a plain and reach the Ishinca base camp which is just below a mountainous cirque.
We leave the refuge and cross the river, joining the path which zigzags up to
the plateau. The slope is more gentle up to the end of the Ishinca lagoon. We
continue up the north glacier to a small pass with little crevasses. About a hundred
metres before the summit the slope is steep, at 45°. We enjoy a pleasant view from the summit. Return to Base Camp.
The climb up to Camp 1 (Morrena Camp) begins at the bottom of the valley on the left by astraight and stony path which leads up to the spur of ice. We continue on the edge of the glacier and reach Morrena Camp which is next to granite rocks. We get a beautiful view of the sunset and of Copa mountain.
We cross a large glacier with crevasses, then take the north-west crest which
leads to the bottom of a pyramid where we discover the rimaye and the 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 Morrena Camp and
descent to Ishinca camp.
We will camp
