Description

Join our experienced guide on this once-in-a-lifetime climb to the summit of one of the Andes’ 6,000ers!

We begin our ascent with a five-hour hike through the beautiful Ishinca Valley, which affords us stunning views of the surrounding mountains and glaciers. At the end of the five hours we will arrive at our base camp and set up.

The next day, we will hike for another two hours until we arrive at the foot of the glacier and begin setting up our climbing equipment. This will then be followed by a one-hour climb to Camp 1. We will spend that night camping on the glacier, with spectacular views back into the valley.

At 3 am the next morning, we will wake up and begin our final ascent to the summit. This will involve about five hours of climbing, including up a 60 meter wall that can either be done with ropes or as a free climb, depending on what you are comfortable with.

Once we reach the summit, there will be sublime views of some of the surrounding mountains, including Huascaran, Santa Cruz, and Ranrapalca. After a brief stay we will begin our climb back down to Camp 1 and then on to Base Camp.

On the final day, we will pack up our gear and hike back down through the Ishinca Valley before returning to Huaraz.
