Description Suggest change

Just rounding out the routes to the summit from the Vacas Valley side. Starting from Camp 2 at the Polish Glacier, traverse climbers right of the glacier aiming to intersect the standard trail a few hundred feet below the old Independencia hut. This route is less traveled and takes you across some easy snow slopes (30-40deg). Be prepared for crowds once you hit the main trail. From this point, follow the main trail to the summit.

Location Suggest change

Follow same approach as for the Polish Glacier direct.
