Jan, Oct, Nov, Dec
We’ll drive for two hours up to Berge, Ruales, Oleas Refuge (4,650 m), in the Cayambe-Coca National Park. We’ll have a box lunch while we get used to the altitude. Then, we’ll revise climbing skills and safety. We’ll also check our equipment.
We’ll start our day early to make sure we have enough time to reach the summit by 7:00 am. We’ll start climbing up to the edge of the glacier until the standard route. In roughly 6 hours we will make the ascent, under good weather conditions. Once at the summit, we will enjoy amazing views. We’ll start then our 3 to 4 hour descent back to the hut. Then, we’ll drive back to Quito.
We'll sleep in a refuge.

UIAGM/IFMGA Mountain Guide from Ecuador.
I fell in love with the mountains at a young age while climbing Ecuador’s volcanoes with my father. I guided in the Andes for 8 years and have been guiding for the past four years in the Northwest United States. In 1997 I expanded his adventure skills by taking on rock climbing. I represented Chimborazo province three times as the Ecuadorian National Rock Climbing Champion.
I completed his UIAGM certification with the Bolivian Mountain & Trekking Guide Association, accredited by the National School of Ski and Alpinism of Chamonix (ENSA), and completed Advanced Alpine and Rock Guides Courses with American Mountain Guide Association (AMGA).
I usually spend some months every year in Ecuador (from October to January, but it varies every year). The rest of the year I am based and guide in Europe.
Stay up-to-date on the best adventures!
