El refugio
El refugio -
This refuge would be the base from where we would gear up and leave for our hike to the summit. Apperently it can hold up to 70 climbers at a time which is neccesary because somtimes up to a hundred people try to reach the summit of Cotopaxi per weekend.
We were there in the of season though and we litteraly had the whole place to ourselves.
We arrived at 1pm in the pooring and horizontal rain. Later it cleared up and we went to practice on the glacier with crampons.
We would go to bed at 6pm to wake up at 11pm. At midnight we left for the summit.
