Hi there!, yes.. you must climb it.. Chimborazo is the highest mountain in Ecuador and it has 5 summits.. here you can see us on Veintimilla summit, the second highest summit after Whymper summit (6,310 m).. the highest one!

See you soon in Ecuador!

Thanks. We were just arriving to the Veintimilla summit when this pic was taken.

I was overther in 2008! The wind was so strong (70/80 km/h) that we stopped on Ventimilla summit: it was impossible to reach Whymper summit. Great picture for the line of horizon and for the light on the snow!

Re: Chimborazo!

When it gets windy up there, it really gets windy!, especially as soon as you reach Veintimilla.

We had a great climb, the weather turned as soon as we got to Whymper half an hour after this pic was taken. We didn't have the same view as we had from Veintimilla. Weather was awful on the main summit, but we still enjoyed it.

Thanks Edoardo for the comment.
