Lead Guide: Pepe Landazuri
Climbers: Diane Evans, Robert Krueger, Timothy Pattee, John Stephenson, Scott Curtis.
Today we are going to have a much-needed rest day. As I mentioned yesterday, we had a great climb yesterday and stopped just a little below the summit. Everyone enjoyed the view and enjoyed the climb because the conditions were more than good, they were perfect! Everyone is acclimatized very well at this point.
File photo of the southern summit of Cayambe from the air, with Cotopaxi (the team's next goal) in the distance on the right. Chimborazo is in the center on the horizon, a little hard to pick out. The climbing team had much clearer atmospheric conditions than the day on which this image was taken.
