Ecuador’s Volcanoes: The Team Readies for Cayambe Summit Bid

Hello, this is Eric Frank and the Ecuador crew checking in from climber’s hut here on Cayambe at 15,300’. The sun’s just gone down and we had a pretty restful day.  We slept late this morning, had a big breakfast, and then climbed for about an hour and a half to get up to the toe of the glacier.  We trained for a couple hours, talked about the climb and then came back to have a big dinner.  We’re hoping to be in bed in the next thirty minutes. And we’ll be getting up in the middle of the night to make our attempt to climb Cayambe.  So check back tomorrow, hopefully will be giving a call down sometime in the mid morning to early afternoon to let everyone know how things are going. Have a great night.
