Even 30m below the summit I was getting funny static in my hair so I descended pretty quickly and warned a few other people who were heading for the summit! About 200m another lightning bolt came down not too far away and my reaction was an army style dive into the mountain – not really my day I thought! It cleared up as I got closer to Quito and finally as I reached the Teleferique ...
