full traverse (Quito City - Lloa town center)
5h 14m 57s
An amazing day on a beautiful route. Joaquin and I had a true "winter" day on Pichincha after a very rainy week in the city. Never seen conditions like that up there. Extremely careful going on the Rucu summit ridge/saddle and Guagua summit ridge. Descent into Lloa was super muddy. Saw an Andean Fox high up on the saddle and no other people.
This route still probably has an hour or so that can be taken off on a dry snow-less day!
