Luke reported in today and let us know that they got close on Chimborazo, but no cigar. Team turned about 19,200’. New snow over pretty firm ice. Sometimes discretion is better part of valor. Great effort by all and 2 summits out of three ain’t bad. Spending the night in Banos, soaking in the hot springs and swimming pool, and then back to Quito tomorrow, with flights home in the evening.
Thanks to all our team members for their contributions to the group and to Luke, Romulo and the rest of the guide crew in Ecuador.
