After a full day rest in Nasca, I started the climb at 4:30 in the morning. Within 55 kilometers I gained 2,278 meters of altitude. Although in the planning phase this seemed a difficult day, it was not. The road was in perfect condition, and I could enjoy being all by myself in the middle of the mountains and listen to music.
Weather was perfect, but the visibility became less and less good the higher I was going, and in the last hour of the climb I could not see further than 25 meters.
