Thanks to Agnese for adding this peak.

Imbabura is a volcano north-east of Quito near the town of Otavalo, overlooking San Pablo lake. It can be climbed starting from the village of La Esperanza (at about 3000 m altitude) north-east of Imbabura, reachable by public transportation. The trailhead is a few Km outside La Esperanza - and a few hundreds meters higher -and can be reached by private transport if not on foot. Imbabura has two peaks: the north summit is first reached after a hike through paramo followed by an up-and-down scramble and it's lower than the south one. The south summit can be reached from the north peak by walking along the crater rim.

Thanks to Agnese for this description.
