Climbing Cayambe (18,996ft/5.790m) in 2 days

Itinerary

Day 1: Quito (9,186ft/2.800m) – Cayambe Refuge (15,092ft/4.600m)

We will leave from Quito (9,186ft/2.800m) early in the morning and will drive north through the Avenue of the Volcanoes until we get to the town of Cayambe. This drive will take us around 2 hours. From there we still have to drive for another hour to the Ruales Oleas Berge refuge (15,092ft/4.600m). In the afternoon we will head up to the glacier for ice practices and training. We will learn some basic techniques, which include last but not least proper handling of the climbing equipment (crampons, ice axe, rope, etc). We will go back to the Refuge for dinner and rest (-/BL/D)

Day 2: Cayambe Summit (18,996ft/5.790m)  Quito (9,186ft/2.800m)

We will wake up at midnight and depart to the top (18,996ft/5.790m) around 1 am after a light breakfast. The ascent takes about 6 to 8 hours. Once at the summit we will take our time for pictures of the surroundings, and then we will head back to the refuge in 2 to 3 hours. At the refuge we will rest, pack our belongings and return back to Quito (B/BL/-)
