A Huaraz Treks and Climbs classic ascents of three peaks in the Peruvian Cordillera Blanca.
Ishinca Valley Mountain Climbs is an exciting, well-balanced itinerary combining ascents of three popular peaks: Urus 5495m, Ishinca 5530m and Tocllaraju 6030m.
The expedition is particularly suitable for those who have done alpine routes before. We highly recommend to allow yourself enough time to acclimate to the altitude. We warm up on Urus and Ishinca and our main climbing objective is Tocllaraju which provides an excellent snow climb with the most challenging summit day. The most difficult section involves at least three to four rope length of 50° to 65° snow/ice climbing at an altitude of over 5800m. Conditions on the mountains in 2019 were excellent, with most teams summiting on all the peaks included in this itinerary.
