Ecuador: Acclimating Hike with Great Views

Saludos de Ecuador,

Our team hiked to the climbing hut on the Illiniza volcanoes today. The weather treated us well and afforded us great views of Cotopaxi and the Illinizas, north and south. The hike was enjoyable and everyone is feeling great. Right now we’re relaxing at the climbers’ hut, drinking tea and chewing the fat. Tomorrow morning we’ll get an early start and climb the ‘normal route’ on Illiniza Norte, which has some sections of 3rd class scrambling. Then we will descend the ‘scree route’ and continue on to our waiting vehicles. I’ll check in again tomorrow evening when we’re at the hacienda, Chilcabamba.

Hasta manana…
RMI Guide Mike Walter and crew
