November 14th, 2023–
The IMG Ecuador team enjoyed their day yesterday by hiking on the lower mountain of Cotopaxi (currently closed due to active eruptions) and stopping by a local town to feed Alpacas and visit historic Inca Ruins. The team is feeling strong and well-acclimatized to begin their ascent of Chimborazo (20,561′), Ecuador’s tallest peak, today. Climbers are currently traveling towards the mountain and look to either stay at the Carrel Refuge (16,000′) or climb to high camp (17,400′) for the night depending on weather and conditions. Sending the best of luck to our Chimborazo climbers!
