Day 1: Quito – Cayambe Refuge (15,091ft/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 (15,091ft/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 the last but not least proper handling of the climbing equipment. We will go back to the Refuge for dinner and rest.
Day 2: Cayambe Climb to the Summit (18,996ft/5.790 m) – Quito
We will wake up at midnight and after a light breakfast, we will start our way to the top (18,996ft/5.790 m). 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
