Hanging out a high camp on the normal route. 2007...

Description 

Climb to the Nido de Condor (Condor's Nest) 17,880 ft. Most make a high camp here and assault the summit. Follow the ridgeline until you come to a bergschrund cross this on the left and then climb a steep section trending right. You will reach a false summit. From here follow the ridge right to the pico sur (south summit).

Protection 

Perhaps some ice screws and snow stakes. Definitely bring an axe.
