Wake at midnight in order to reach the summit by 7 o'clock and be off the snow by 10 o'clock, when the snow softens and becomes dangerous. The first hour out of the refuge is spent ascending the pumice-covered slope to the glacier. The glacier then has to be crossed, avoiding the crevasses, before joining a ridge to make the summit passing close by the western edge of Yana Sacha. This rock cliff dominates the northern face of the volcano. Grades average out at about 40%. After reaching the summit, return to the refuge for about 10 AM. Return transfer to Quito.
For climbs to Chimborazo, Iliniza and Cayambe, ask for further details.
