We will drive to the Iliniza Ecological Reserve entrance. Then we will hike to the base camp at 3900 metres high. It is located near “La Virgen”, in the foothills of Iliniza. Then we will have dinner and turn in early for the night.
Today we will begin our five hour ascent at 600 am. We will hike up to the saddle where we will meet the trail that follows the ridge (La Ensillada) up to the summit. Once there, we will enjoy spectacular views. Then we will start our 3 hour descent.
I always do my best to adhere to the itinerary, but unforeseen circumstances may require last minute changes. Weather conditions, road conditions, vehicle breakdowns and the health of climbers can all contribute to schedule alterations. Please be prepared to be flexible when necessary.

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!
