Day 1: The team arrived safely in Quito (9,350′ /2850m), already pre-acclimatized for the Cotopaxi Rapid Ascent expedition.

Day 2: “Awesome training today on the glacier. We went over crampon and ice axe skills, and pushed up to touch 17k. Everyone is in good spirits, and no issues with the altitude.”
