Arrival at Base Camp. This is one of the easiest mountains in the area. Keep in mind that it’s a real high tour with 30° ice passages and chinks on the glacier.
We start at Cebollapampa to reach the basecamp of Nevado Pisco. After a first steep, a flatter part continues. Then we will meet a small waterfall and reach a small area which is ideal to build our base camp.
The summit of the Pisco could also be reached in 2 days, but in order to acclimate us we will better spend some more time.
We will start to climb to the top some time before sunset. It’s important to carry headlamps, as they will be lighting our way through stony grounds.
Then we will pass an area of slidy rocks below the Huandoy glacier where we have to calculate with falling stones and be very careful. On the other side of the glacier there are dark rocks that serve us a better way to the top of Nevado Pisco, although they don’t seem to be quite consistent.
Soon we will be arriving to the base of the Nevado Pisco’s glacier. In almost every case, there is a clear trace showing us the way to the saddle. We have to follow the steep ascent before reaching the top at 5760 m.
From the summit we can observe many mountains such as Huandoy, Chopiqualqui and giant Nevado Huascarán.
After having breakfast we will start descending to Cebollapampa. Our transfer will we waiting for us. End of services.
