What you see on Mark Hansen's photo (taken, like this one, from the "false" north peak) is not just the crater rim but, clearly visible, Pasochoa's true summit. Many Ecuadorian guides make trekking groups believe that the north peak (approximately 4,170m) is the volcano's real apex, for two simple reasons - it's less time-consuming to reach, and there's more room for larger groups to sit and enjoy the views. Don't be fooled though, and get back to work. It should take you no more than 20 minutes of extra effort to "really" climb Pasochoa from my friend André's viewpoint (2013-06-21).
