Rob you have never climbed most of the peaks you describe, they havnt changed that much. I would have been better without this misleading guide book. I'm glad I never bumped into you after I climbed Tungurahua, or Pasachoa or Corazon.
Please do not commit to any long hikes or strenuous climbs on the information of this book alone, you will regret it.
If you ask the average Ecuadorian mountain "guide" the way up a mountain he will give you bad directions because he has never actually been there. It seems this is the type of information contained in the guide. The farther away from the road the less accurate the information gets, you have never been to half these places have you Rob.
I think it sells because it is the only one out. Go to the South american Explorers club in Quito and read the trip reports rather than buy this drivel. I though it was a good read, then I actually got to Ecuador and started using it, what a joke.
Maybe its not your fault but your name is on the cover.

We found the guide useful while in Ecuador, but routes have changed on some of the peaks (Iliniza Norte, Chimbo). Read morePublished on May 17, 2000 by M. Thurber
We were able to explore areas that hardly any foriegners had visited since several of hikes are new to this edition. Read morePublished on September 3, 1998
Thurber greatly improved text and added needed route diagrams, but needs color pictures. We liked hikes around Chugchulan especially and one to Mindo.Published on August 15, 1998
