Ruco Pichincha Rock Climbing
Looking west beyond the summit
Craggy extinct volcano with incredibly easy access from Quito makes for a great first acclimatization peak. The normal route is well marked and you are unlikely to be alone, offering some classic Ecuadorian sand marching. There are numerous other ways up, my personal favorite being the east ridge.
Teleferico up to Cruz Loma, then it is about 90 minutes to the base of the peak proper.
Climbing Season For the Ecuador area.
