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.

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!!

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.

Climbed to the summit in 3.5 hrs from the very nice hut at 5000m. Staying at the hut made for a nice, easy day and allowed for some good acclimatization. Lots of clouds rolled in from the south soon after I reached the ridge, so views weren´t that great. Overall, a very easy climb with a nice steep section to reach the summit (10m, 60 degrees). My partner Tony Lombardo also reached the summit.

BicRungeeRoute Climbed: Normal (West Ridge?) Date Climbed: June, 2002  Sucess!
Climbed with Micah Lambeth next day after Urus Este. Similar weather - foggy valley floor then ascended into sunshine. Took route name too seriously and got off-route, heading straight up to col, traversing east ridge on other side, then crossing over top and connecting with normal route before final ascent to summit. Small bergschrund just before summit but not difficult. Like Urus, nicely defined summit. Descended via normal route.
