Baños, Riobamba, Ambato, Machachi and Quito.
José Ribas Hut
If you´ll be staying in Quito for a couple of days prior to the ascent, a good acclimatization routine would include visiting the old town, climbing the towers of Basilica del Voto Nacional, doing Rucu Pichincha Summit (from TeleferiQo) - up to 4.696 m. Another good option is going for Middle of the world and go for a hike at Pululahua Crater.
As for the equipment, we can help you with technical equipment, but you need to bring shoes with you.
Certified IFMGA - ASEGUIM Mountain Guide, National guide, Rescue Team Member GRA & Lawyer.
As passionate mountaineer and with almost 20 years of guiding experience, I worked with clients from all over the world. Each tour is a unique experience and I will pleased to guide you to the marvellous summits of Ecuador and South America. My journeys have allowed me to guide and summit several mountains in Peru, like Alpamayo, Chopicalqui & Tocllaraju amongst others and to experience some mountain climbing in the Alps of Austria and Italy.
I’m based in Baños de Agua Santa, Ecuador’s famous piece of heaven, where we run together with my Austrian girlfriend a small tour operator and a consulting office.
Continuous improvement and keeping up with the State of the Art is our mission:in 2017, I completed the IFMGA certification and, recently, in 2018, I received the National guide certification from the ministry of Tourism.
