The team’s recent summit of Cotopaxi was followed by a visit to a couple of haciendas, including the spectacular San Augustin. They also visited the home of a famous Ecuadorian climber/guide/photographer and very dear friend – Jorge Anhalzer. Romulo’s wife, Patricia entertained the team at their home and then it was time to get some of our members back to Quito and on flights home Monday. They should be home later today.
Four members are staying with Rikki and Romulo and going to take a shot at Chimborazo. This one a bit of a tougher challenge than Cayambe and Cotopaxi. A lot depends on getting lucky… lucky with weather and lucky with the conditions on the mountain. We’d consider a summit of Chimborazo the real frosting on the cake but, regardless, it’ll be a good experience and a real challenge. Let’s see!
