Ecuador Volcanoes: Cayambe Summit Attempt in the Morning

Yesterday we made our first big jump to altitude, from sleeping at roughly 10,000’ to 15,000’ and everyone seemed to handle it quite well. It’s a good sign that everyone is acclimatizing.

Today we were greeted with moderate winds and blowing snow. Not what we were hoping for but we’ll keep our spirits up regardless. We spent a little time outside today reviewing some basic climbing techniques to prepare us for tomorrow’s summit attempt.  We mostly enjoyed the comforts of the hut here on Cayambe. It’s more of a house than a hut and sleeps about thirty climbers. It has two small kitchens and most importantly, indoor plumbing.

Everyone is doing great and are anxiously awaiting tomorrow’s summit attempt. If all goes well we will try to leave here early in the morning and hope to reach the summit just after sunrise.

Keep your fingers crossed and wish us luck!
