Emily texted this morning early, saying the team was packed up and heading to camp on Antisana. She checked in again once there saying the weather was clear but a tad breezy. Clouded over a bit in the afternoon with light rain. That’s more the exception than the rule in Ecuador. Let’s see what tonight brings.
Antisana is a beautiful peak. Maybe even the prettiest of the Ecuador volcanoes. The tricky part from a climbing standpoint is a large ‘schrund which pretty much encircles the mountain just short of the summit. It can be tough to find a way over/around/through that thing. Fingers crossed, as always, for the team.
