A quick update from our teams currently in Mexico and Ecuador. Austin and crew had a great acclimatization hike yesterday and are making a carry with some gear/water up to high camp on Ixta today. All’s good and looks like a fair amount of new snow on the mountains. Team will stay at the Altzimoni Hut at Cortez Pass tonight.
In Ecuador, Luke, Romulo and crew are heading to the refugio on Cayambe today. A skills refresher tomorrow. Two nights at the refugio and an extra day there will help with the acclimatization. So far, so good.
