Second summit on the Ecuador expedition.
Mount Imbabura – 4 621m, reached the summit on December 19, 1999. The peak of this mountain is often hidden by clouds. A very old volcano, it dominates the Otavalo region and has a very long approach, before you reach the steep slopes. After you reach the col at 4 270m, the climb becomes much more demanding, on very unstable surfaces characteristic of volcanic rock.
The expedition started with Mount Fuya Fuya (4 280 m), the second acclimatization summit, followed by Cotopaxi (5 897 m), the Cumbal volcano, in Colombia (4 764 m) and finally Chimborazo (6 310 m).
