sherpalitoRoute Climbed: ruta normal with official peruvian mt guide Date Climbed: 02 sept 2003  Sucess!


Straightforwarding 03day climb. Started 03 AM from BC besides refugio. Summited 08.00 AM. Some clear but deep crevasses some half hour before the summit. Snowbridge gone so we had to leave to ruta normal and climb steeply via the rocky pillar to rejoin the ruta normal under the summit.

Breathtaking views from the summit. Get there before the clouds obscur everything. Absolutely Awesome !

The steep 1,5 climb from Cebollapampa to the BC besides the Refugio takes quite a lot of energy if you do carry all your stuff. Plenty of donkeys to rent at cebollapampa. Small stream at BC and stone toilets.

The walk from lower BC besides the refugio to the snowline is quite long (1,5-2 hrs) in the dark so it might be a good idea to use the small advanced BC with few water (laguna at 10-15 minutes)

Again, no summit... At least the view was quite dramatic (see pictures)! Left the refuge at 2am, traversed the moraine field and got to the glacier at sunrise time, without the sunrise... it was snowing like crazy. Met a bunch of Austrians that we followed to the col between Huandoy and Pisco. Still snowing, so we go up a bit higher (till 5400m) and decide to turn around since we can't see anything.

Climbed to the summit in 6 hrs after a night at the excellent refuge at 4665m. By sleeping and eating at the refuge, we were able to carry minimal weight and complete the climb in only 2 days. The refuge is a little expensive ($30/night with dinner and breakfast), but it sure made life easy. Nice route with a few crevasses which we easily stepped over. Views were great until the usual clouds rolled in at 10AM.

Pisco gave us a good training and acclimatisation before we climbed Alpamayo and Huascaran

The last peak in Peru for enjoying the beautiful peruvian mountains. Started early and had a fine time at the peak. Descend was not problematic.
