Climbers: Brett Davis, Steve and Isabel Herstell
Lead Guide: Pepe Landazuri
January 13, 2011
Pepe called at 5:15 am Ecuador and US Eastern time with this update:
We left at midnight, and climbed for about 4 hours, then decided it was time to turn around. We got up to about 5,200 meters, though. Right now, it’s just after 5 am. We’ll try to get some sleep for a few hours, then wake up and go to some hot springs today that are not too far from here. Hopefully everyone will feel better after that. We're all fine - the team's headaches are going away, and now some more sleep will be good. Tomorrow I’ll call from the Cotopaxi area."
