Ascent Trip ReportKen and I did Santa Cruz Trekking for 3 days first, then, continuously trekking to Mt Pisco (18,898 ft) elevation as 3 days trekking. At the first day after Santa Cruz trekking is done, we set up tent near from the road, by hiking down cliff to the flat section. Next day, we hiked into Base Camp. The 3rd day, we hiked into Moraine Camp by hiking at very sharp degree's slides, passed glacier lake. Moraine camp is probably around 16K ft elevation. Next day, we woke up 2AM, had hot drink and crackers, then, aimed to the summit with all climbing gear (Mountaineering axe, ice climbing crampons, helment, harness, carabinars, etc). We reached to the summit with sun-rise time. We enjoyed watching both Moon and Sun.
