The months of good weather are June, July and August. Although the time usually changes suddenly, is known that there are good and bad seasons from the climatic point of view. Another important variable is the moon change that makes worse the climate during about 3 to 5 days, with rains, snow-covered, low clouds and much wind, this last one is specially strong in the col that the North and South summits form. To be a hill highly visited, the normal route or of "the throat" of the South Huascarán is changing its level of difficulty as it advances the season. During the first weeks, it is common found with deep snow, which long ago more desgastante the advance, and obvious the route is previous free from anchorages and marks. On the contrary, if the last weeks of the season are chosen is possible to be with a good track of affluent hard snow, edges of cracks demarcated and the route equipped with stakes and tugs in certain sections
