Lets Go! Vamos!

Day 1: Huaraz - Collon - Ishinca Base Camp

You are picked up at your accommodation and begin the journey with a spectacular scenic drive along the Callejon de Huaylas Valley and then up to the Village of Collon 1 hour drive. Here our gear is loaded onto the donkeys and we walk up the valley Quebrada Ishinca on a gently rising path to our camp at the head of the valley. This is a lovely walk, passing through Quenual forest. As we walk up the valley it opens out, and we see Tocllaraju ahead. Base Camp is at 4390m. 4 to 5 hours hike

Day 2: Base Camp - High Camp

We leave Base Camp around 10am. Today we need to carry all our equipment and hike up to High Camp of Tocllaraju. A steep climb on a moraine ridge and across large moraine rocks for 3 hours to where we set up our camp on the moraine immediately below the glacier at Moraine Camp at 5000m.

Day 3: Tocllaraju Summit Attempt

We leave camp early around 1am and climb to the summit. From the Moraine Camp we climb up the glacier to a shoulder at 5300m. We cross the bowl through complex crevasses heading towards the summit. We then climb a not too steep slope a long a ridge, until we reach a large crevasse at the start of the North West ridge which we follow to the summit of Tocllaraju. In some years there is an impassable bergschrund high on the mountain. From the summit, we descend with several rappels, collect our things from the camp and return down to base camp. 10 to 12 hours activity. Slope angles between 50° to 70°

Day 4: Return to Huaraz

Walk out the valley and return to Huaraz. 3 hours walk.
