We’re back in Quito after giving Antisana a go this morning and coming up empty handed. We made it to about 18,000ft after navigating several tricky crevasse sections but were eventually turned above the col by a crevasse in white out conditions. A storm rolled in as we descended and is supposed to dump a lot of snow on the mountain tomorrow. The team really enjoyed the experience of getting off the beaten path on a remote, rugged peak with stunning views and amazing wildlife to conclude the three climbs. We’re off to get a beer and some food to celebrate the trip. I’ve attached a photo of the climb.
