Hello everyone from Ecuador! This morning our team climbed on the second peak in our Ecuadorian program - Iliniza Norte volcano with a height of 5126m.  Yesterday morning we left Quito and arrived at the national park at the foot of the mountain. We started from a height of 3900. After lunch we reached the Nuevos Horizontes refuge at 4700. Here we met two Andean wolves here, had a great dinner with special Ecuadorian dishes and went to bed early. Today we left at 5.30. The route was heavily covered with snow, the rocks were icy, but this did not prevent our team from climbing to the top. We were at the highest point at about 9 am.

Now we have come down and settled in one of the old Ecuadorian haciendas. We will prepare for the next ascent.
