This location marks the highest point on the Equator--the precise coordinates given above are for the WGS84 datum. The position of the equator will vary slightly depending on which datum you choose, so if are visiting this point as a side-trip during a Cayambe ascent, you can find the ridgecrest in the vicinity and walk it up and down for a few hundred meters in both directions, ensuring that you have reached high points of the equators of most datums.

Based on the trip report from people visiting the nearby graticule confluence (see above), the point can be reached with some high-altitude scrambling and glacier climbing.
