The Climb to Chimborazo Ecuador is done during the night, since it is safer and recommended to be done at this time. We will start the first part of the ascent at 10:30 PM where a path of stones, rocks, snow and ice awaits us. When we reach 5,350 meters above sea level, we will be amazed by the rock formation of El Castillo.
We will continue climbing the glacial edge with inclinations of 30 to 40 degrees for seven or eight hours, and then finally arrive to the summit of Veintimilla, which is 6,227 meters tall. If the weather conditions allows us and we still have energy, we can continue one more hour for a fairly steep journey to reach Whymper Summit, the highest peak at 6,263 meters.
This part of the walk will be optional and you can decide whether or not to do it on the same day of the climb to Chimborazo.
