The team has been doing great and are through the first stretch of their acclimatization rotation and are now headed to the Jose Rivas hut on Cotopaxi.

On Friday the team climbed Ruminahui (15200 ft) in Cotopaxi National Park and enjoyed some breathtaking views of Cotopaxi. The following day they hiked to the Jose Rivas but and completed snow school and glacier travel training above the hut in preparation for the ascent of Cotopaxi. Today they are resting in the morning at the wonderful accommodations at Chilcabamba prior to hiking back up to the hut for the next nights climb of Cotopaxi.

The weather seems to be trending towards the favorable for the team and if all else goes well they should be standing on top early in the morning on the 16th.

After that it is on to Banos for some rest and relaxation at a lower altitude and then Chimborazo. Stay tuned for more updates and pictures!
