Climbing and Hiking in Ecuador, 5th Edition was a real treasure of off-the-beaten track hikes and good descriptions of the more established routes. I spent several months exploring in Ecuador, staying out of the major cities. This book was great for getting to known the less known areas of Ecuador. Recommend some use of GPS and purchase topographic maps from the IGM, since none of the routes are marked, need to have good navigation skills.
