Elevation: 15,300'

Hey it’s Mike Walter checking in on Sunday night from the RMI Ecuador’s Volcanoes Climb.  We are here at the Cayambe climbers hut.  We arrived here last night.  Today we did some training and review of climbing techniques:  cramponing, ice axe arrest and roped travel.
It’s been pretty windy and off and on snow and rain. We’re hoping for better weather and good climbing conditions tomorrow. There’s a lot of snow on the route so we will hopefully be able to climb tomorrow.  Maybe some deep trail breaking but we’ll give you a shout tomorrow hopefully from the summit and if not, then we’ll check in once we get back down.
