Climbing Nevado Ishinca (5,530m)

Climb Overview

Mount Ishinca at 5530 meter (18,138 feet), this is justifiably one of the most popular summits in the Cordillera Blanca, which is lies nestled between the 6000 meter-plus summits of Ranrapalca to the west and Palcaraju to the east. Climbing mount ishinca is entirely on snow and ice, but does include some up-close-and-personal views of impressive crevasses and a steep, final snow slope to the airy summit. The view from the summit is spectacular on clear day with huge snowcapped peaks around it. This climbing is ideal for people who are looking for slightly or more leisurely pace, or in otherwise as acclimatization for mountaineers who are looking for climbing higher summits.
