Climbing Tocllaraju Climb - Cordillera Blanca

Summit: 6032 meter (19.790 ft)
Difficulty: moderate (D)
Duration expedition Huaraz - summit - Huaraz: 4 Days

Good to combine with Ishinca and perhaps Mount Urus (5423) to start with. Urus is a very easy mountain but due to the decrease of the glacier there is only little snow left on the way to the summit. While one has to take off and put on his crampons several times Urus has become a lot less interesting, especially in comparison to Ishinca.
Ishinca combined with Tocllaraju takes 5-6 days.

Briefing about the attack with your guide and preparation of your pack for tomorrow.

Comment: at Ishinca basecamp you could also stay in the Refugee if desired. Extra pay to do so is approximately US $ 15 per night. We will still carry all tents and mattresses though - quite often they have a lot of people and it is too noisy to actually be able to sleep (and hence, clients return to their tents).
