Ecuador High Altitude Expedition: Dispatch 9

Ecuador High Altitude Expedition: November 26–Dec 10, 2010

Lead Guide: Pepe Landazuri

Climbers: Diane Evans, Robert Krueger, Timothy Pattee, John Stephenson, Scott Curtis.

Pepe called Sunday, December 5th at 7:00pm (Ecuador time) with the following message:

Hi, this is Pepe calling on Cotopaxi.  Getting ready for climb tonight, and we all ate a big dinner.

It was cloudy at first, but then it cleared up and we could see the summit of Cotopaxi. We are all ready.  We're going to be in two teams, with the first one leaving at 11pm tonight with Timothy and the rest of the group will follow later with the other guide at midnight. Hopefully we will all get to the summit.  We're going to be careful because of the weather.  That's the plan and the news.  We'll call you later and let you know how we did.
