Thanks to Jon Zigmond for adding this peak.

Ruminahui is made up of three peaks: sur, central and norte. I believe central is just a walk, sur involves some easy scrambling, but norte (the highest) requires helmet and rappel gear. Norte can be approached from either side, but the summit ridge is rather exposed (in a storm)

Sorry, we don't currently have the latitude and longitude of Ruminahui Norte in our database. Therefore we can't show this peak on a map.

    I walked there from Tambopaxi. We had to turn around a few metres before the summit due to storm (the summit ridge is exposed to lightning)
