Ecuador Seminar: Knoff & Team’s Acclimatization Takes Them to Rucu Pichincha
Today we continued our acclimatization with a hike of Rucu Pichincha (15,411’), a peak nearby in Quito. A teleferico (gondola) carried us to about 13,000’, where we began ascending. Although a light rain greeted us on our arrival, the precip quickly gave way to a pleasant mixture of clouds and clear skies. The team made the summit in good style, but unfortunately the clouds obstructed our views. We made it back down to the gondola just in time to avoid a torrential downpour, and returned to the city to relax and prepare for our move to Otavalo. The team is in great spirits and everyone handled the altitude very well!
