Following a beautiful climbing season in Montana, Acli-Mate’s Mountain Sport Drink
(Cran-Raspberry flavor) accompanied me to Ecuador in November where I summited:
Illiniza Norte -16,818 ft
Illiniza Sur – 17,267 ft
Chimbarazo – 20,564 ft
Antisana – 18,714 ft remains unfinished business, weather conditions forced us to turn around below the summit ridge.
Attached are summit pictures from Chimborazo and Illiniza Sur.
As on previous expeditions, Acli-Mate was my choice of electrolyte replacement drink. Rehydrating and eating at altitude is
critical to stay hydrated and strong. The convenient package size fit into every parka pocket and don’t tear even when getting soaked.
When at home I drink Sport Performance Mix (again, Cran-Raspberry flavor) after every workout.
In January I’ll climb in the Cordillera Real, Columbia’s part of the Andes. Our objective is the El Cocuy Range with its numerous peaks.
