Mount Urus (5,495m/18,028ft) is located in Ishinca valley, which lies in the very heart of the Cordillera Blanca.
The 3D2N climb is an ideal acclimatization-climb and a good chance to learn important mountaineering skills – especially if you are eventually headed for more technical climbs or higher elevations later on.
On this journey, you will traverse the eastern ridges of Mount Urus towards the summit. Along the way, you will be treated to splendid views of the surrounding landscape, including peaks like Mount Ranrapalca (6,162m/20,217ft), Mount Ishinca (5,550m/18,209ft) and Mount Tocllaraju (6,032m/19,790ft), to name but a few. Climbers often combine an easy climb to Mount Urus or Mount Ishinca (which acts as a warm-up) with a more technical climb to Mount Tocllaraju.
This climb is ideal for beginners with little or no prior climbing experience. Nevertheless, it is still essential that climbers are in good physical shape and are well-acclimatized given the high altitudes and long trekking distances.
