After getting shut-down on Cotopaxi (weather) and Cayambe (avalanche hazard) and Illiniza Norte yesterday (thunder & lightning), Greg reports that the team gave Illiniza Norte another try today and summited at 10:30am this morning! Not a bad way to celebrate Romulo’s 50th birthday!
They’re back at the hut that sits in the saddle between Illiniza Norte and Illiniza Sur having an early (well deserved) dinner then grabbing a few hours sleep before the 1:30am wake-up call to climb Illiniza Sur early tomorrow morning. These guys are tough!
