Ecuador’s Volcanoes

Ecuador: Mike Walter & Team Arrive and Start Acclimating

Our climbing team has all arrived in Ecuador, and we just got back from our first acclimatization hike up Rucu Pichincha, a 15,400’ volcano outside of Quito. Now we’re traveling to the town of Papallacta, well-known for its natural hot springs, for another acclimatization hike.

Everyone is doing great with the rapid increase in altitude, but we all felt the thin air and were huffing and puffing up above 15,000’.

Thanks for checking in. We’ll be in touch…
