  Cecilia and I at 4800 m
by filipdebont

So we started at the parking lot at 4500 metres, and had to climb to 4800 m. You might think bah, it is only 300m difference of height, but I can assure you that at this altitude this is not so easy to do because of the fact that there is les oxygen in the air.

But we made it (we = I and my buddy Cecilia), we supported each other on the way to the Refugio.

Lucky for us there were some kind members of our travelling group who wanted to make a picture of us in front of the sign board of the Refugio Jose Rivas at 4800 m. Like this we could prove that we had done it.

The Flemish Flandriens had done it!
