Exclusive mountain climbing program "Climbing Ishinca" with MCS AlexClimb Guides

Ishinca valley with prevailing summits of Urus Este, Ishinca and beautiful Tocllaraju - this is one of the most popular and comparably easy to access mountain region of the high part of Cordillera Blanca.

Mount Ishinca is located in the upper part of the valley of the same name - Ishinca and for many years, is becoming more popular as one of the mountain very accessible for climbing among many mountains of the Cordillera Blanca in Peru. The height of the Ishinca Summit - 5530 meters above sea level - this is a very serious altitude comparable to the height of the highest mountains in Europe. However, Ishinca is favorably different from its distant relatieves of the Alps and Caucasus by a combination of factors such as: consistently good weather throughout the season - from May to September, convenient accessibility - from the place where normal car arrives, to the base of the Ishinca route it is to walk just 3-4 hours, and this despite the fact that all cargo rides the donkeys! In addition, climbing Ishinca for climbers is much easier than climbing, for example, Mount Elbrus - it is because the level of oxygen in the latitude of Peru is significantly higher than in more northern or more southern mountain systems of other continents. In general, if you add up all the advantages of Mount Ishinca, from the inconspicuous and quite ordinary mountain in the Cordillera Blanca where is a countless mountains like this, we get almost ideal object for mountain climbing! Mount Ishinca offers to the climbers all the necessary elements for a novice climber - a significant height, amazing views from the Summit, the technical elements, though not very difficult, but quite obvious - it is easy scrambling on the rocks, crossing the glacier, need to work with ropes, climbing with an iceaxe an average snow slope - all these elements make the ascention of the Ishinca a memorable climbing event, especially if for you, like for many climbers of Mount Ishinca - it is one of the first mountain ascents in your climbing career!

Our Principles

AlexClimb Rule #1 - Safety First

From the very beginning of our activity, here nearly 16 years, the first Principle of work of School of mountaineering and rock-climbing of MCS AlexClimb is the Safety Priority. On the basis of this Principle all process of training is based, all programs and rounds are developed and carried out only within this main principle. We consider that at professional approach to development of programs, at personal discipline and correctly put motivation - occupations by mountaineering and rock-climbing are COMPLETELY safe. And from the return - all troubles and accidents in our sport come from nonprofessionalism, from ignorance or neglect by elementary standards of safety, from irrational motivation, from revaluation of own forces and opportunities. All these prerequisites we COMPLETELY EXCLUDE in our work - ours Rock-climbing, Ice climbing and Mountaineering are based on one Principle - the Safety Priority. In rock-climbing, mountaineering and ice climbing, the Priority of Safety of MCS AlexClimb-is your personal security and comfort irrespective of, than we are engaged - we train muscles and we work technology of the movement in the sports hall and on the rock climbing wall, we make the way through snowstorm to top or we relax on golden sand of the Caribbean beach after hot day of trainings on rocks. The Safety priority - the main credo of School of mountaineering and rock-climbing of MCS AlexClimb.

AlexClimb Rule #2 - Leave No Trace

Closely interacting with Nature, working with the active programs in mountains, woods, lakes and rivers, we perfectly understand the importance of carefull and respectfull bahavior towards the Nature, for its resources. From the very beginning of our outdoor-activity we adopted rules of  Leave No Trace technique - the standard of behavior of the person accepted in all the civilized world in relation to environment and especially - to the wild nature. After all on the relation of people to the nature near which they exist, itself can draw dalekoidushchy conclusions on the relation of these people to... Where and as we didn't travel - we don't reserve any garbage, we try to reduce whenever possible our influence on environment to a minimum. We clear earlier zagryazyonny tourist parking of the left garbage, we take out and we take out to utilization places that to us other people left there. We consider that only thus, at personal individual consciousness of each citizen, each tourist, climber or autotraveller, we will be able to keep the nature surrounding us in its state, natural, suitable for life, - in it pledge of the healthy future for ourselves and our children.

AlexClimb Rule #3 - Sober Concious

The position of AlexClimb Mountain and rockclimbing School regarding healthy lifestyle is quite clear - we consider that only sober consciousness is capable to fill sincere emotions,  to sympathize, to enjoy life in all its variety. Bright various enjoyable life is possible only on condition of keeping the absolute sobriety and purity of consciousness. Any way of obscuring our perception of reality is intended to do harm to our consciousness and bring harm to our physical health, to replace the true values by false ones, to destroy us physically - to turn us into flabby, weak, senseless, gray herd with empty hazy eyes. We don't force anybody to our point of view, everyone has a God's gift of making his own choice and to destroy himself if that is what he wants... But in AlexCilimb Mountain Climbing School we accept quite certain and very simple set of rules: neither alcohol, nor drugs.
