Day 1. Departure from Riobamba at 10.00 and drive for 1 hour to the Chimborazo Reserve. We continue by car to the Carrel refuge, at 4850 m. / 15912,07 ft. Spend the afternoon in the refuge, in order to rest and improve our acclimatization. The guide will give information about the route and a safety briefing. After dinner we will get a couple of hours sleep. At 22.30 p.m. it is time to start the climb.
Day 2. The first part of the climb is a mixture of boulders, rocks, snow and ice, until we reach the large rock formation of El Castillo (5350 m. / 17.553 ft.) From here we continue over the glaciated ridge. The slopes have an average steepness of 30 – 40 degrees, with some icy sections of 45 degrees. After 7 – 8 hours we reach the Veintimillia Summit (6227 m. / 20.429 ft.) With good snow conditions, sufficient time, and if you still have enough energy, you can continue for 1 more hour across a challenging field with penitents (ice towers) to the Whymper summit (6263 m. / 20.548 ft.) The descent will take 3 – 4 hours. From the Carrel refuge transfer back to Riobamba.
Arrival at about 12.00.pm.
