Climbing Antisana (18,891ft/5.758m) in 2 days

Itinerary

Day 1: Quito – Base Camp (15,580ft/4.750m)

We will leave from Quito (9,186ft/2.800m) early in the morning and drive east for about 3 hours through the Andean highlands until we get to Laguna Santa Lucia (14,118ft/4.300m). Depending on the road conditions, we will drive up the highest we can for another 30 or more minutes to the end of the road. Once there, we will put our backpacks on and continue for an hour up to the base camp (15,580ft/4.750m) located right below the glacier. We will use the rest of the day to relax and hang out around until dinner, which will be served by late afternoon (-/BL/D)

Day 2: Antisana Summit (18,891ft/5.758 m) – Quito

We will wake up at midnight and depart to the top (18,891ft/5.758 m) around 1 am after a light breakfast. The climb will take us about 6 to 8 hours. The first part is about an hour hike to the glacier, where we put the crampons on and start the glacier ascent. Once at the summit we will take our time for pictures of the crater and surroundings and then we will head back to the base camp in 2 to 3 hours. At the base camp we will rest, pack our belongings, have something to eat, drink and go down to the car, from where we return back to Quito (B/BL/-)
