Illimani Trip Report (#3259)

Great and difficult 3-day climb. A guide is essential if the way through the snow and ice is not clearly marked. Ice axe, rope and crampons are necessary. First night at the base camp, 2/3 hours from the village. Second night at the high camp (Campo Alto). Third night down at the village after an extremely long day. Not technically difficult but the number of crevasses, the steepness of the slope and the very high altitude make it a tough and dangerous climb.
