First Day of Acclimatization Hikes

Our team had a great training hike today, taking a gondola from Quito to an altitude of around 13,000’. There we started our hike up towards Rucu Pichincha, the dominating volcano that towers over Quito. We hiked in clouds to an altitude of ~15,200’. Everyone did great with the thin air, and climbed very strong. After descending, we had a little free time to explore Quito before dinner. Dinner was delicious Ecuadorian cuisine including tomales, sea bass, and potato and cheese soup.

We’re exited to head out tomorrow morning for our second training hike to the Illiniza volcanoes.
