We actually climbed Olleta Crater which is just to the west of Nevado Ruiz. We were going to climb Ruiz, but were not allowed to by park authorities because of the percieved eruption danger at the time. There was a great view of Ruiz summit from Olleta Crater. Colomia is one of the most beautiful places on earth. I hope the political climate gets better because tourist will come back over and over again. We experienced no problems in Colombia; very friendly people!
