Antisana - Suggested Combinations

The acclimatisation principle of "climb high and sleep low" has proved to be true in any mountaineering expedition. The more ascents you do before a major ascent the more chances to succeed you will have at the end. The speed of how quick a person acclimatises varies from one person to the other.
Following is a suggested list of ascents that are progressively higher.
1. Pasochoa
4.200 m / 13,776 ft
2. Guagua Pichincha
4.797 m / 15,700 ft
3. North Iliniza
5.125 m / 16,810 ft
4. Antisana
5.758 m / 18,886 ft
