Climbed with Rob (HOL). Started from Limpiopungo Lagoon. Hiked straight up by the central ridge. Got some hail hundreds meters below the summit. We left the backpacks and rushed ourselves up to the summit. Very cloudy and warm, perfect weather for a thunderstorm.
Got back to Tambopaxi lodge in the middle of a thunderstorm.
