One of the most technical ice climbs in Ecuador. Climbed with my good friend Edgar Parra (ECU). Inclination between 70 and 85 degrees. Summited Cumbre Ambato first and then the main summit.
Great weather and view of the other mountains and volcanoes.
In 2002 the glacier had receded so much that I don't think this is really a viable climbing route any more. Anyone who has been there since let me know if that is not the case and I'll remove this post, but I recall our guide or the caretaker at the refugio telling us La Rampa was no longer in use.
