Description

Today I bring a big proposal for you: climbing 3 summits in just one trip.

The idea is to reach the top of the Urus, Ishinca and Tocllaraju peaks, in the Peruvian Cordillera Blanca. The total expedition will take us 10 days!

Each one of these mountains offer its own challenges, gifts and views. Urus (5420 m) peak is the easiest of the three. Then, Ishinca (5553 m) offers a higher summit and a steeper climb. And the most challenging climb will be the Tocllaraju (6000 m), the last summit of the trip.

Climbing the Urus, Ishinca and Tocllaraju summits is a real challenge. Therefore, it is very important to be well acclimatized and to have an excellent physical condition. Keep in mind we will be at high altitude, in areas above 4500 meters! It is also important to have some prior experience in alpine and ice routes.

The ascent starts with the Ishinca peak. Then, we will conquer the Urus mountain. Finally, the hardest part comes with the ascent up to the Tocllaraju, which is the highest summit.

At the bottom of this description you will find a sample itinerary of this 10-day alpine expedition. Of course it will vary according to weather conditions as well as the technical and fitness level of the participants.

If you are planning to come to the Cordillera Blanca, you cannot miss this trip. Contact me now and let’s conquer these 3 summits together!
