Elevation: 19,348'

Hello everybody back home this is Casey Grom checking for RMI’s Ecuador Expedition.

We are currently on the summit of Cotopaxi.  We had a great day, pretty tough conditions, lots of new and loose snow.  We made it up in just over 6 hours.  Everybody did great.  We are hanging in some sunshine right now taking a few photos and are going to be heading down in just a little bit.

We will check in again as soon as we get back safely to the hut.  We’ll be heading back to Quito tonight.

Well done team!  I am looking forward to getting the full report when you visit for Xmas Spence.  Feel free to bring what ever amount of snow you can manage to Idaho because we are dying up here.
