Ecuador: The Team Tackles Cotopaxi

Hi everyone! The weather cooperated during the climb and when we arrived to the summit we had stormy weather. The entire Alpine Ascents team reached the summit of Cotopaxi (19,347 feet) yesterday. The group are very happy by their achievement. Because 100% of the group made the summit, It took them 6hours to get to the summit and 3 hours to come back down. A great performance at that altitude. Cotopaxi is the second highest mountain in Ecuador. Chimborazo is next and we are ready in Riobamba!
