Time to catch up on news down south. Dallas Glass is home and so is the team. Success on Orizaba wasn’t easy but Dallas and team did great. Icier than expected, the climb (and descent) demanding time, strength and skill. The guides and our climbers delivered. Result was a safe, successful and incredibly rewarding ascent. They earned this one.
Luke, Romulo and team in Ecuador took their best shot at Antisana. A mere 300 ft from the summit, they found the final bergschrund just too wide, too broken to get around. Super shot on a beautiful mountain but just a pinch short. They been enjoying the last of their time in Ecuador visiting old friends of IMG and having lunch at Romulo’s home. His wife, Patricia, is a super cook. Luke will be saying good-bye to a couple of our climbers who need to get home. We have 4 climbers staying to take a shot at Chimborazo. They make it home the day after Thanksgiving. We’ll keep you posted as to how it goes.
