Attempted climb with AndeanFace expeditions in February 2017. Slept night in Refugio (fantastically nice for a Refugio) and began climb around midnight. Met with avalanche conditions around 5200 meters and had to turn back. Beautiful mountain.

I guided a friend up this mountain as our first climb in Ecuador after Illiniza. We camped outside the Refugio and the same night left around 1 am for the summit. The route is straightforward though winding through crevasses and icefall. Anyone with experience shouldn't...More

Hopefully no one will try this without proper equipment and proper guides. With both of those in place, the route is fine. An initial rock scramble takes you from the refugio to the edge of the glacier. You need to be there by midnight to...More

Woke up at midnight to ascend the volcaneo with family. The descent down was breathtaking, with the sun rising and views of Vulcan Pinchinche and Cotopaxi. I would recommend Cayambe for active travelers who want to challenge themselves.
