We’ll wake up at midnight and have breakfast, and then we will make our way up to the summit; which is at 5,753m. It will take us approximately 5 to 6 hours to get to the summit; when we arrive we will be able to take in a great view of the Ecuadorian sierra. It’ll take us about 2 to 3 hours to get back down to the refuge where we will pick up all of our equipment and go back down to our car, and make our way back to Quito. B/
