Rucu Pichincha Trip Report (#17716)

K Siebke & I attempted to hike up Rucu from the PanAm Highway in Quito. We turned abck at about 13,500 ft, having broken out of the forest and finding ourselves on a plain with several higher outcrops in sight. These were probably the crater rim??
This is an objectively hazardous climb, due to the human element. Beware.
