Top day!! We start the ascent between 2:30 a.m. and 3:00 a.m.; first through a winding path, the path is a mix of good path with some demanding trails over moraine rocks and loose ground until reaching the glacier, after 2 to 3 hours we will arrive at the glacier where we will equip with crampons, harnesses and ropes.
Most of the way is not very steep or technically difficult, although the altitude makes it challenging. Depending on the season, there may be some short steep sections or hard ice and even a few crevasses to get over. We try to reach the summit in the early hours of the day. At the summit there is ample space to walk, appreciate the incredible surrounding mountains such as the gigantic Chacraraju, the Artesonraju (paramount), Huandoys, Caraz, Huascaran, Alpamayo and others. Then we will descend to the Morrena field where we will have our rest, lunch and continue to the base camp.
