One More Round Up Cotopaxi

Illiniza Sur and Norte. Pho­to from pre­vi­ous expedition

Our last Cotopaxi Express of the sea­son is under­way. Ossy reports the groups is doing well and made an acclima­ti­za­tion hike up Ruca Pich­in­cha after some time in Quito enjoy­ing some great eats, a city tour, and the hos­pi­tal­i­ty of Hacien­da Rumiloma.

Join­ing the team is Suzan­na, Jim, and Bri­an. Next up is Illiniza Norte where a pleas­ant rock scram­ble awaits and a chance to get to almost 17,000 feet before mov­ing to Cotopaxi.
