brotaRough weather  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jul 7, 2012


The weather started to be unsupportable from 4000m on - very strong wind and heavy rain, no visibility, on the top at 2pm slightly above zero. Still I continued about one hour to the top just to climb the mountain - came back all wet and totally frozen. Technically very easy hike and well marked.
Still the day before they were searching all night long for a lost girl - found her ok at 7am - she did not pay even one cent to the local indigenous rescuers - volunteers...

I went as a day hike from Popoyán. As I got higher winds were very strong, summit covered in clouds. Went half an hour up from the antenna's. Icy rain, extremely strong wind, no views convinced me to turn back.

No danger of any sort encountered, but no Condors as well.

Burnt the soles of my shoes on this literally hot mountain! Excellent view of Pan de Azucar, which did not have any sugar (snow) at all at this time.

Great hike, and great hot springs! Wife was sick, so we left the group early.
