Day 1. We leave Riobamba at 8.30 and drive for about 3 hours to the foot of the Ilinizas mountains. At the La Virgen area (3900 m. / 12.795 ft.) we will start the 3-hour hike up to the Nuevos Horizontes refuge at 4650 m. / 15.256 ft. During this hike you will have to carry your backpack with the climbing gear.
Day 2. At 3.00 we leave the refuge. It takes about 45 minutes to reach the glacier, and the rest of the ascent will take average 4 hours. The route is a mixture of rock and ice, with very steep ice walls of up to 80 degrees, requiring technical rock and ice climbing skills. There are also several crevasses. Reach the summit at sunrise, and descent to La Virgen. On the way back to Riobamba we will have lunch in a restaurant.
Arrival at about 16.00 p.m.
