Climbed Urus with Jacek R. from the Base Camp. Nice and easy, good to acclimatise.

Long hike up a ridge from the Ishinca valley to a very short, crevasse-free snow field. As an acclimation peak or for a first-time it's cool, but Vallunaraju and Ishinca are more fun.

Early in the morning, the cloud cover was only a few hundred meters above the refuge. We waited. Not long after 9am, we headed out anyway, not expecting to summit, but sitting indoors doesn´t help either, and my partner needed more altitude to get better acclimatized. Not long after 10am, the sun got strong enough to dissolve the clouds, and we ended up making it all the way to the summit.

In fact, the day before we had discussed traversing from Urus Este to Urus Central, but that was not possible anymore, for three reasons:

1) The ridge leading down from Urus Este in the direction of Central didn´t look very inviting, so we would have to descend the normal route for quite a while, then go around Este and head for Central. Should I try for Urus Central again, I´ll go directly instead of over Urus Este. In fact, Central looks rather steep from the east as well as from the south, so I would aim for the col between Urus Oeste and Central, and try to climb Central from the west. That ridge didn´t look to bad.

2) had the traverse along the ridge from Este to Central been a not too difficult route, we might have had enough time, but now that that route seemed too hard, we didn´t.

3) we were kinda tired anyway.

Made it to the top at 9:00 am under extremely windy conditions but clear sky. Wonderful views of surrounding peaks. Great conditions with summit almost completely covered in snow and less rocky than seen on previous years.

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.
