Luke, Romulo and crew are heading for the barn. In this case, the ‘barn’ is the Hacienda San Augustin, a spectacular spot below Cotopaxi. The team summited this morning in good weather and good conditions. Everyone got back to the hut safely, packed up and headed for the hacienda. At 19,300 ft. plus, Cotopaxi is not easy. It keeps coming at you. Never terribly difficult but never easy, either. Two nights and a full rest day tomorrow at the hacienda. I’d say a well-deserved rest.
