Ecuador’s Volcanoes: Team Returns from Cayambe Climb

Hey, this is Mike Walter calling on Tuesday the 25th of June.  We are all at Chilcabamba Hacienda outside of Cotopaxi National Park.  We spent two days at Cayambe, sleeping up above 15,000’.  Yesterday we went out for our summit bid on Cayambe, we had a great day of climbing.  The winds turned us around above 18,000’.  We were within about 1,000’ of the summit maybe 700’  of the summit.  But the winds, a cloud cap and some riming ice on our clothing turned us around. We are back at Chilcabamba resting and we’ll head to Cotopaxi tomorrow to attempt that one.  We are all doing well and enjoying our climbing here in Ecuador.

Oh, that sneaky Cayambe. Give the doggy a pet for me at Chilcabamba, and sending good weather thoughts your way for Cotopaxi. xoxo K2 & Kobi
