Let’s catch up with the Ecuador and Aconcagua teams currently in the mountains. Big news today was that Jay, Romulo and their entire team had a great summit of Cotopaxi. Weather was excellent, snow conditions great and the team was strong. They made quick work of the thing.
Team has been down at Hacienda La Cienega for a few hours already and is planning on having dinner this evening at Hacienda San Augustin. Spectacular spot. IMG was probably their first foreign climbing group who were customers once they opened the hacienda to tourists. Sightseeing and visiting some old friends on tap for tomorrow with dinner at Romulo’s place, all local dishes prepared by his wife, Patricia.
Rest day on Aconcagua. Prepping loads for their carries to the next camps and going through the mandatory health checks with the Park. Nice to take a day off.
Tomorrow will mark their first carry to C1. All good with the team.
