  • Number of People Encountered:

and a friend from Israel, summited the Ixta on 8 of march 2000. we had perfect conditions, bride sky, there is nearly no snow left on the two glacier fields. we didn't need any kind of tools (no crampons, no ice-axe...nothing). the only wilderness cabin is "grupo de los cien" at 4700mts. from paso de cortes it takes u one day to get (walking) to the "buzon" where u let ur name and in the afternoon u reach the hut. the knees route is the easiest though it cost u a lot to see that one false summit follows the one before. it was great !
