Drive from Quito or Riobamba to the foot of Carihuairazo. Acclimatization walk and night at refuge at 4200 m.
Early in the morning we leave the refuge and walk for two hours until we get to the glacier. From there, we have 3 more hours to the summit. The scenery is impressive!
IFMGA/UIAGM Mountain Guide from Ecuador.
I grew up in Antisana volcano region, and as a kid I already did many hiking and ascents in the area.
I first ascended Cotopaxi in 1985, when I was 12 years old, and since then my life spins around mountaineering. At 17 I started my formation as mountain guide, and in 2008 I became the third IFMGA certified guide in Ecuador.
I participated as member and guide in many expeditions around Ecuador and South America, some of them in rare routes, and making first ascents.
From 2007 to 2009 I was director of ASEGUIM’s mountain guide school.
I speak Spanish, English and Quichua (native Inca language), and love to guide people to discover the mountains in my country.
