Route Climbed: glacier N-ridge NE Date Climbed: 29th july 2004  Sucess!

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.

Route Climbed: North East Ridge Date Climbed: 29th July 2004  Sucess!

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.

Route Climbed: Normal Date Climbed: July 18,2004  Sucess!

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!!

Route Climbed: Normal Route Date Climbed: 1 June 2004  Sucess!

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.

Route Climbed: SW Ridge Date Climbed: July 2, 2003  Sucess!

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.

Route 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.
