Thanks to Jim Toman for adding this peak.

Along with its sister peak, Iliniza Sur, Iliniza Norte dominates the landscape surrounding the small farm town of El Chaupi. These two peaks were at one time a larger volcano but like many others in Ecuador a historic explosion left the volcano reduced to its size today. The summit can be easily reached in two days from Quito and involves little more than exposed scrambling over loose rock and a bit of acclimatization.

Thanks to Jim Toman for this description.
