Sincholagua is an old very eroded volcano. Its main faces are made of solid volcanic rock. It contains two main peaks, being the southern one the highest with 4893 meters from sea level. Due to weather conditions the last glacier to cover Sincholagua's slopes dissapeared in the 1950's. The mountain covers an significant area of paramos (andean highlands) and private lands. The famous Pita river, that decends from Cotopaxi volcano has created an enourmous canon in its western slopes, great for rock climbing. Sincholagua is a demanding walk, 8 to 10 hours, to reach the las peak towards the summit, a 40 meter easy rock climb.
