We will leave from Quito in the morning and drive for 2 hours to Cotopaxi National Park,  and  continue driving slowly as high as we can for another hour, which usually is until around (13,451ft/4.100m), from this place we will follow a grassy ridge until we to the rocky steep place from where we will go to the right of the mountain, on slippery gravel terrain,  and loose rocks, we will be walking up for about 4 hours  until we will get the last section, which is a 30 m of almost vertical easy scrambling that leads to the summits of Sincholagua, the ascension will take us between 3 to 4 hours and  another 2-3 hours going, we might use one rappel to descend from the summit  and will walk down the rest of the trail to the car. And finally we will drive back to Quito by late afternoon (-/BL/-)
