Ed note: Isn't there an h in sits?

Looks not unlike the crapper at the Octavio Alvarez hut on Orizaba. You were able to use it? When I was there someone had thoughtfully left a stick next to it so you could beat down the pile a little before adding your own offering. Most everyone just went behind a rock.

Nice view of the sunrise from the throne though.

I ran into Burton and Marcos on the way out. They were both feeling much better by the time they got back to La Lena.

You guessed it GV!

BTW, the difference between the Orizaba hut (and crapper) and those in Ecuador is stunning -- the Ecuadoran huts are amazing.

*some* of the huts in Ecuador are amazing. go check out the Illiniza's hut sometime. absolutely the most awful "toilet" i have ever experienced, and it made the hut on ixta look spacious and comfortable.

Oh! I would have, except when we drove out to do Illiniza, the road was completely washed out by a mudslide!

The huts I did stay in were on Cayambe and Cotopaxi. both were luxurious by any mountaineer's standards (admittedly, I've never been to any in Europe).

Do the Ecuadoran huts have hot and cold running vermin like the one on Orizaba? I like cute furry animals and all, but not running over my head in the wee small hours when I've got an altitude-induced headache.

Didn't hear or see a single one. And they have flushing toilets, real gas-stove kitchens w/ running water. They're fantastic! (except that, because they're so nice and so accesible, many yahoo Ecuadorians hike up there to spend the weekend partying, which can suck if you're hoping to get some sleep before the big day!).
