Elevation: 18,000'

Hi this is Seth checking in from the Jose Ribas Hut on Cotopaxi.  All the climbers are safe and sound back at the refuge.  We aborted our summit attempt at just over 18,000’ today due to high winds.  And all the climbers are back down safe.  We’ll be going to La Cienega Hacienda tonight and have a little good food and a hot shower.  We’re all anxiously awaiting that.  We’ll check in then.
