Mountaineering: Urus, Ishinca, Pisco. The 5000m easy in Cordillera Blanca
places availables from 03 to 18 june. Climb Urus, Ishinca, and Pisco – a phenomenal hiking and easy climbing tour on beautiful glaciated peaks in the Cordillera Blanca, Huaraz, Peru.
Our first climb is Urus Este, ascending the east ridge to its 5,420m summit, a fantastic peak for acclimatization as well as for refreshing and/or learning the skills you need for glacier travel. Ishinca follows, offering a higher summit (5,530m) and a slightly steeper climb. These two are great predecessors to Pisco 5,752m, the grand finale. The Normal Route on South-West ridge is frequently climbed in reason of its moderate difficulty and its beauty and it is also very popular amongst climbers to acclimatize for a 6000m or more technical ascents.
– Spend more nights in a mountain tent allowing a good journey to be made and early start to complete a long tour.
– Some sections of the ascent may require using crampons, the use of an ice axe and being roped up. Skiing includes many sustained 40 degree slopes.
– Emergency rescue facilities in the mountains are very limited and you need to be able to deal with demanding conditions and basic facilities.
