|Nice page. Useful resource while preparing for my climb on Iliniza Norte. Good description of how to get there. |
There are not a lot of Ecuadorian mountains on summitpost, except for the well known names as Chimborazo and Cotopaxi. So this kind of efforts, maintaining a mountain page for Norte, are really appreciated.

|Hey, nice work on this page -- and great shots of the mountain, too!|
One thing I remember about this climb is that there were two summits - and the one WITHOUT the cross and stuff on it seemed to be higher (I climbed both for the hell of it)....

|Bouska006||Little extra info|
|We had to pay the $5 per person at the Ranger station, and we got very official receipts and were asked to register. Also, be very careful at the summit w/ the cross, as when we summited, the rocks and cross were literally buzzing w/ electricity. It wounded like a broken converter or something, but then the ball on my stocking cap started burning my head w/ static! Scared the crap out of us,but a few meters below was fine. Have fun!|

|Inday||Bad weather has changed the mountain|
|As my climbing log notes and as SPer HIGH EXPEDITIONS has noted, the weather has made this mountain a lot more technical. Snow, ice, and unstable rock are of much greater concern.|
See HIGH EXPEDITIONS posting in climber log about Polish climber who died.
Also, refuge is in top shape and fees for the park are now $2. If you do not pay on the way in, stop and pay on the way out.
