Ecuador’s Volcanoes: Nugent & Team Ready for Summit Attempt

Hey, everybody this is Billy calling and checking in from Ecuador on the Ecuador’s Volcanoes trip.  The crew woke up yesterday morning at the Hosteria San Luis, where we enjoyed some really nice facilites after our hike on Cero Fuya Fuya.  We went to the famous Andean Market in Otavalo where the crew got a chance to see all the local handicrafts and eat some crazy foods, all the cool stuff that’s for sale on a super busy Saturday market.  It was a real treat that we were there on a Saturday.

Then we geared up and headed up to the hut on Cayambe.  The road was in super bad condition.  So, we ended up having to run laps with the 4x4 thru some deep mud while the rest of the crew was walking along the way.  Vans couldn’t get within 10 km of the refugio. 

But everybody is up here right now.  We are taking a rest day.  We did a bit of training and we are hanging out.  Hopefully getting geared up for a summit attempt tonight.  The weather has been super awful all day.  Lots of clouds, blowing snow, lots of wind and everything around us is covered with ice and rime
Currently the weather is improving so we are keeping our fingers crossed for tonight and we’ll take our first crack at a big volcano.

So, we’ll call and check in tomorrow and let you know how it goes. 

Signing off for now,
RMI Guide Billy Nugent
