Urus is an acclimatization mountain to prepare for the higher peaks in the Cordillera Blanca. It's normally considered a trekking peak more than a climbing one, but weather conditions can make this 'easy' summit far from a sure bet. Crevasses are not a concern as the moutain only has a small snow cap. The normal route is bordering the small glacier for a slope of snow not complicated. The interest in this peak is for its location with great views and the height over the 5000 meters (5420 meters is a very good reward). It's the perfect acclimatization trip. If your time in Peru is short or you have little high altitude experience the climbs in this valley should be considered.
