Been a great week here in the mountains of Ecuador doing some high altitude fitness training in the the most beautiful of surroundings and escaping the pre-christmas drinks and party season back in London.
Check out these videos from summits of Illinizas and Cayambe, 2 of the 6 summits of the week:
The Cayambe summit day was a particular highlight. We left the refuge at 11pm and summited just after sunrise. We then returned to the refuge and I picked up an awesome Specialised mountain bike for a 1200m decent from the refuge past the entrance to the national park. Thanks to the good folk at Papagayo for lending me the bike! Totally sweet ride.
