sistinasRoute Climbed: NE Ridge  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Sep 6, 2007


Trekked in through the Cojup Valley and crossed a pass to get to high base camp. Climbed in a mix of overcast and whiteout conditions, so hardly any views. We had the mountain to ourselves. This is the highest I've ever been and I was very surprised at my ability to acclimatize.

Date Climbed: Jul 5, 2006
Easy climb probably because I was actually acclimatized (unlike the first mountain I summited). My favorite part of the trip, however, was at the base camp. I attempted to play soccer with the Quechuas, but I could only go a couple of minutes before I was gasping for air.

Six of our club, (South Wales Mountaineering Club) summitted that day. I was the first person up there that morning but lots more passed us as we came down.
We did this as a warm up for Tocllaraju, but none of us were successful there.
Q. Ishinca is a really great place.

Date Climbed: Jun 19, 2006


We spotted the route while we were taking some gear off to leave for the next morning, we had not heard anything about the route and just made it up as we went along. We were able to go underneth the rock band untill richt before the hanging seracs, then we were able to turn up and climb a really nice ice and snow chute up to 70 degrees. very fun climb, highly recomended for those of you who want a little more challange than the normal route.

Logical continuation of our acclimatisation, began by Urus. Easy walking on the hard snow, perfect weather. 5 hours from the Ishinca Base Camp

TrabalonSE Ridge-SW Ridge  Sucess!


My friend Pau and I very happy because it was our first 5000 summit.
We climbed SE ridge, very beautiful route, and down SW ridge, more easy and less beautiful than the first.

Great acclimitization climb. Simple glacier travel with short steep sections. Hard day to do it from basecamp if not acclimated. Also a good route to climb if you plan on doing Ranrapalca cuz you get a good view of the descent route which is pretty tough.

Nice acclimitazation climb. Did a traverse of the mountain -- climbed the NE Ridge and descended the normal route. We never did rope up on it...

Nice climb. It was a breeze after doing Toc the day before. Left at 6 am and summited by 11, and down in 2hrs. Pretty simple, nice 45 degree 60m section at the end. With the late start had soft conditions on this part, probably better to leave at 4am. good peak to acclimate with.

GlennMerrillRoute Climbed: Northeast Ridge Date Climbed: July 24, 2005  Sucess!


Traversed the mountain by going up the Northeast Ridge and down the Southwest Ridge. The Northeast Ridge is more interesting, but we wanted to get a close look at Ranrapalca (which was out of condition).

laureljarndtRoute Climbed: Southwest Date Climbed: June 13, 2005  Sucess!


Attempt to do the "face" of Ishinca by climbing the ice/snow line between the northwest and southwest route. Got two pitches in and determined it was not going to be enjoyable. Bailed to the Southwest route for a successful summit

Great climb, fun acclimitization route. From BC to summit in 6 hours. Outstanding views of the Blanca. I love Peru!

alexclimbRoute Climbed: Southwest Normal Date Climbed: 19 May, 2005  Sucess!


Easy climb for getting acclimatization. Two hours glacier walking from Ranrapalca lake. Perfect weather. Exiting view from the top. This mountain should be considered as initial climb for any climbing program in this region.

It was very exciting to look at those mountains, maybe the most beautiful in the world, from the summit, so near to the sky.

Beautiful mountain with precious glacier. The dawn in the glacier of Ishinca with the view of the orange-yellow color of the Nevados that were surrounding me is one of the best experience that I've lived in the mountains. Hard and great day. My highest summit for the moment (I wish to return to Cordillera Blanca someday to climb other mountains like Pisco, Alpamayo, Tocllaraju...).

The most beautiful mountains of the world are in the Andes of Peru, I'll return, I'm sure.

A long rewarding climb, wonderful views. Our group made a traverse of Ishinca (going up via NE ridge and back via the normal NW route). It won't be easy to forget the beauty of that dawn on the glacier.

Started from Base camp at 2:30 am and climbed up through the left ridge and went down the right side towards the Rarapalca-Ishinca Col. Great mountain for aclimatization and beautiful views!!

GertiƱoRoute Climbed: Normal Route Date Climbed: 1 June 2004  Sucess!
Leaving the Base Camp at 4.350 meters at 3.45 in the morning, we reached the summit around 10 o'clock.

Luckily we had the mountain to ourselves on this beautiful sunny day (incredible views on a.o. Toclaraju).

Easy climb but not to be underestimated if not sufficiently acclimatised (which was the case). Many thanks to Roger for helping me reach the summit.
