The route starts from the parking lot "La Virgen", situated at 3900 meters in 9 kilometers from the El Chaupi. The first 3 km go through the alpine meadows on the well-recognized trail. Before getting to the scree ridge you h ave to keep right till the campground located at 4400. The trail can be seen clearly from the base of this ridge, heading north towards the creek.
Wake up early and be on the trail before 5 am. You’ll be hiking diagonally up on very steep loose scree until gaining the north east shoulder of Illiniza North. Once there, the route continues up by steep rocky sections until it joins with the Normal Route right below the summit pyramid, at the last steep gully. The descent route is the same.
