Ecuador’s Volcanoes: After the Climb

Things didn’t look all that promising when the team woke up this morning.  The clear skies we lit the stoves under were gone and we were solidly in a thick cloud.  Often when climbing you have to go check it out and at the end of our first hour Cayambe was entirely visible.  A waning half moon illuminated the upper mountain and the snow was perfect cramponing.  With barely a breeze, you couldn’t ask for a better day to climb.  The team worked hard today, earning the top in great style and enjoying the views of the other Ecuadorian volcanoes poking out of the clouds.  We could even see Cotopaxi, our next objective. 

Good job everyone and enjoy tomorrow’s rest.
