Ascent Trip Report

Unlike the conventional wisdom which is to climb during the night, we climbed during the day, since my guide thought the conditions were superior during the day, and it turned out right. The glacier on Cayambe is spectacular with endless huge crevasses and seracs, hanging ice walls, and the views were just breathtaking. We were also lucky to have the entire mountain to just 4 of us. We started from the refugio at 10:00 am, and were on the summit at 4:30 pm. It took another 2 hours and 30 mins to be back at the refugio.
