Great news this morning – Luke and team reached the summit of Chimborazo. No small accomplishment. Snow conditions for the last several years have been ‘less than optimal’ on Chimborazo and it’s simply a more difficult climb these days. That’s why IMG limits our attempts to 4 climbers plus guides. Today, everything fell into place. Some new snow, good climbing team members, great leadership and being in the right place at the right time all came together and the result was a great success on the tallest peak in Ecuador. Team is already on their way to the town of Banos for a little food and a shower. What a great way to cap off an already great trip. EVERYONE did their part, including the weather, and the results prove it.
With that, let’s wrap up posting for this trip. The team will have Thanksgiving dinner with Romulo and Patricia, at their house. It really doesn’t get a lot better. We’ll do this again in February with Emily Johnston and Romulo Cardenas leading the way. Join us —– still room for 1 or 2 more.
