Yesterday we hiked to the refuge on Cotopaxi and after a good dinner, we headed to bed early to get some rest before another alpine start. We left the refuge at 1am this morning and summited about 5:30am. We made very good time. Jenny and Joe did really well but needed to stop at 18,537 feet / 5650 meters due to fatigue. They descended back to the refuge and after a break and some food they headed back to Quito as planned to get ready to fly home. I think they had a great trip.
We all had a great time on Cayambe (on which everyone summited) and on Cotopaxi. All four members of our team heave been really great people to climb with. It's been a lot of fun together. "
