Description:

Start at the 77km mark off the road from llanganuco valley. 4 hours to the moraine camp midway up a scree slope. Another 3-4 hours to glacier camp at around 18000 ft. 5-6 hours to the summit. A few steep snow pitches along the ridge lead to a very exposed crevasse/bergschrund crossing to the summit ridge. 2-3 hours down. Great climb. Can be down in two days if you are aggressive. Great views of the cordillera blanca. Highly reccomended.
