Flight over the south-western edge of the Nevado. The carpark, entry point for all hikes, is visible at 9 o'clock, at an altitude of 4.000m. From there the main trail leads straight up to the rim. This part can be pretty crowded on weekends. Experienced hikers then follow the rim to their right, with the "Eagle/Aguilar" at 6 o'clock and "Friar's peak/Fraile" at 2 o'clock (under the clouds). This ambitious tour takes around 6 hours.
