|Boriss Andean||Route Climbed: Normal Route to Cumbre Central. |
Date Climbed: Nov 2, 2007
|Started from Laguna de Limpiopungo at 12:30 pm. We took the trail that goes by the stream and gained altitude later by climbing up the ridge that ends at the base of the central peak.|
It snowed during the whole approaching to the base of the peak and until we got to the summit 4,634 m (15,203 ft) at 4:00 pm.
Visibility was poor but the feeling of being up there with Paul, Rebeca (England), Alexandra (Germany) and Gustavo (Ecuador) was great.
Got back to the trailhead at Limpiopungo at 6:30 pm. Nice view of the mountain totally covered by snow.

|The climb was a little adventure, because we didn't manage to find the correct path from the Laguna. The last about 300 meters to the top are no real fun because of the loose ground.|

|Climbed Ruminahui Norte from Laguna Limpiopungo. Took 4 hours to the top and 2 1/2 hours down. Lots of dirt, scree, and rock in the last gulley. Good acclimatization hike.|
The lake is nothing to get excited about but the views from the top are great.

|jstanley||Route Climbed: East Ridge & Gully of Ruminahui Sur Date Climbed: 9June2004|
|My son Thomas and I climbed Ruminahui Sur from our campsite (roughly 3900 m) about one km south of LimpioPongo. We followed the route described in Yossi Brain's book. The last part of the climb up the broad gully to the summit is unattractive due to the poor quality of the rock. Climbing this route with a large party would be hazardous. The summit is a single 3 to 4 meter spike of rock, which is not difficult because it is a knobby conglomerate.|
We had climbed Ruminahjui Central the previous afternoon.
