The second GVI Phoenix Nicaragua Volcano Challenge is complete!

Thirteen participants and thirteen survivors!! In the first day the challengers made the summit of Volcano Telica to begin their four day journey and later climbed the very difficult Santa Clara Volcano. Day two featured climbing to the top of Volcano Rota as well as making the summit to the moon like Cerro Negro Volcano. To descend Cerro Negro, each challenger volcano boarded and made it to the bottom in less than 45 seconds!! Day Three saw the challengers conquer three volcanoes: Ojo de Agua, Las Pilas and El Hoyo and the day ended with a dip in Lake Asososca. Finally, the great Momotombo Volcano awaited the challengers on Day Four! All thirteen challengers made the hike and here is the photo to prove it! Wonderful job to the challengers and all the people who have donated and helped us sustain and expand our wonderful projects here in Nicaragua!! More pictures to come this evening.
