A quick update from Ecuador: We're halfway through the Soldiers To Summits Cotopaxi expedition and things are going great! To warm up and get used to the altitude, we climbed Guagua Pichincha, a 15,500 ft active stratovolcano. This was the first chance for the soldiers to test their newly acquired skills and really appreciate how big a goal Cotopaxi will be! Unlike the practice ascents of peaks in Colorado, Pichincha required a lot of scrambling across ledges and scaling small rock faces. Now everyone is excited to tackle mighty Cotopaxi!
Please help us raise $1 for every foot climbed on this expedition so that we can continue to transform lives with future S2S programs. Every dollar helps the cause! Support the Dollar for Every Step Campaign here!
