Rucu Pichincha Climbing Notes

Chandra from CANADA writes:

This is very interesting information board. I sure want to know how difficult it is to summit when you are nearing the top. Is there a safe way to get up there? Or should one hire a mountain guide who can lead you in a safe manner to the top by providing safety harness support. Photos of the difficulty if posted would be wonderful. One would have to acclimatize before attempting such a climb. How about letting Trip Advisor know about this bulletin board?
