Our entire group made a successfull traverse up the southwest ridge and down the northwest slopes. We approached the peak from Quebrada Cojup and Laguna Perolcocha which was beautiful and much quieter than Quebrada Ishinca. This is the highest mountain I have climbed although small by Cordillera Blanca standards. Great views of Tocllaraju and Ranrapalca. Overall the difficulty is similar to the easier routes on Cascade volcanoes.

Yep, it is a snow slog, but it does offer some nice views of the surrounding area. We added some diversity to the climb by ascending from the North and descending to the South (left to right). The North side required a little minor route finding in negotiating one of the higher glaciers, but the whole traverse is easily manageable in a half day. The summit offers some nice views and is a mellow mountain for acclimatization.

Went up north ridge and travesred over peak to Ranrapalca col. was easy in good condition but crevasses/bergschrunds could potentially be obstacles with less snow. Great lttle peak.

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.

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

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.

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).

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!

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.

Very good mountain to begin the acclimatization process, we climbed very fast following the route until the Ishinca col - Ranrapalca and of ahi we climbed direct until the summit, before the summit there is a crack that not represent much danger, the views is very good towards the gorge quilcayhuanca and cojup.
