- All the southeast face routes require a 1 KM traverse across the summit plateau, most commonly through knee-deep, wet snow but occasionally through tortuous nieve penitentes as seen in this photo. Our north face route avoids this. Tim Connelly
- The north face of Chimborazo with AAI's route marked. For those seeking technical climbing at altitude, this route offers superb snow and ice climbing at an upper-intermediate to advanced level. It leads directly to the summit and eliminates the need to make the traverse of the summit plateau. AAI Collection
