Yasu was one of the most patient and caring trip leaders I've ever had. You could tell he truly loved his job and had excellent knowledge of the area.
I thought the 8 rating was too high when I read the trip description but it lived up to the rating.
The trek leaders did an excellent job of acclimating us. Most of us were from sea level and to have 8 of 11 summit Licancabur on a less than stellar day was a testament to that fact. The easier days and multi-day hike built up our stamina at altitude for the summit push.
