Long slog up in wet conditions, no view at summit. long steep descent. Not very rewarding but I know the view can be sweet sometimes.

Woke up very early, was well worth getting the sunrise on Ranrapalca. The snow conditions could not have been better, a fun little climb. It was a nice mix of rock and snow. Took a little over 4 hrs taking our time. The views from the top were well worth it.

Started not quite early (7 a.m.) from Ishinca BC and were on the summit just before the midday, although have no acclimatisation. Perfect weather and snow conditions.

My friend Pau and I climbed this beautiful mountain after climb the neighbour Ishinca. Our second 5000.
Very beautiful the landscapes from the summit but I think Ishinca is quite beautiful to climb.
4'45 h up and down (3'30 up and 1'15 down)

Great acclimitization climb for the area. Steep ass hike out of base camp though. Great views of the peaks around Ishinca basecamp.

Seeing the snow's brightness in the night, the starry sky, hearing the silence.......It was unforgettable. Lobelia.

The weather was perfect - only sun and clear sky. Even no wind. Perfect snow condition and view from the summit. The green lake below is something stunning!

Did climb to the top without difficulties and hurry in 4 hours from the Base Camp.

Bad weather (this seems to be a common theme for me) with no views. A bit disappointing. More rock and less glaciated climbing than I expected.

My first 5,000 m peak. A great climb, but a lot of work on very little Os. Great views.

My second 5000 meters. A hard climb with snow before the glacier. Long but great experience and landscape (Copa, Tocllaraju, Ishinca, Ranrapalca,...). Really I was very tired after this mountain, but I was very very happy the next day.

Leaving Base Camp at 4.350 meters around 3.15 h in the morning, we reached the summit at 7.45 h (4,5 hours), back down by 10.15 h.

Blue sky and beautiful views on the surrounding mountains.

Easy climb with some variation, rocks as well as snow.

After a failed attempt on June 30 due to deep snow and wind slabs, I reached the summit three days later in 4.5 hrs from base camp. What a great climb! It has a little bit of everything - steep snow slopes (two tools helpful), a broad sweeping glacier, easy rock scrambling, and a nice sharp summit. I really enjoyed the route, although the moraine leading up to the glacier was a bit tedious. My partner Tony Lombardo also reached the summit.
