Today we climbed Rumiñahui’s Central peak (15,203) to acclimatize further.  Starting at the beautiful Limiopungo lake, the climb took us roughly 4 hours to the summit and only 2 hours back due to some fun shoe skiing down some scree sections.

Tonight we are at the Tombopaxi again and tomorrow we will be off to the Jose Ribas hut (15,700).  There, we will be conducting a snow school and then off to bed for the early start for the summit at around 12AM.  Everyone is excited and ready to go for our bid on Cotopaxi soon to come.  The beauty of this place makes the climbing here that much sweeter and the people make getting by that much easier.  What a life.
