Ecuador: Nugent & Team Ready for Cayambe’s Summit Bid

Woke up this morning to beautiful blue skies up here at the Cayambe hut with views of the mountain, Antisana in the distance, and a sea of clouds blanketing the lowlands. It was a bit of a rough night being our first evening sleeping at over 15,000’ but everyone took it in steed and felt much better once we were moving around and enjoying a not so rustic breakfast. After downing breakfast burritos and coffee we packed up for a day of training and set out from the hut for the glacier. After about an hour and change of scrambling up a buttress, we hit the glacier and geared up with helmets, harnesses, ice axes, and crampons refreshing up on some of our basic climbing skills. Clouds came in and out, we chilled and boiled… Then headed back to the Refugio to eat dinner and get to bed early for tomorrow’s alpine start. If the weather continues doing what it has been we should be poised for a good crack at the summit.

Wish us luck!
