Took the bus to El Bosque, climbed north ridge from Quito up to Condor Rumi, climbed the east rock ridge of the summit peak. Good training hike, although dangerous for tourists. A vertical mile from the city to the summit.

I actually climbed the higher summit (15,728) of the Pichinchas, GuaGua Pichincha. This is the one that erupted about 3 years ago covering Quito and surrounding areas with tons of ash. It only recently was reopened to climbing. The crater was still very active as evident from the smells and sounds. Too cloudy to see anything from the summit.

My first climb was in 1976 while I was living and working in Ecuador with the Peace Corps.

I returned in 2003 with my son and climbed it again. Nice climb with beautiful views between the clouds. Great memories of time spent with my kid.

Climbed as an accclimating hike with one other friend. Our guide actually was ill and had to stay back in Quito. He went over the route with us before we left. No trouble at all. Very well worn track leads up from the antenna. We did not encounter any trouble, dispite reports of bandits and dogs. Very wet and misty climb. A few snow fluries while scrambling up the summit pyramid.
