The first summit at the very first day at the city.
Got to Ecuador between 1st and 2nd jan 2011 around 1am.
Got some sleep and went for it without any dinner the night before, breakfast or water.
Had to colect some fresh snow on the summit and put inside a little water bottle I found up there to drink something.

Great, fantastic views of the valleys around, Guagua and Quito, that's it. When I started, it was raining.

At the sandy part I got out of the normal route and when straight up doing the small section of rock climbing, very fun btw!
