Ecuador High Altitude Expedition:
Climbers: Brett Davis, Steve and Isabel Herstell
Lead Guide: Pepe Landazuri
Pepe called at 6pm Ecuador and US Eastern time with this update:
"Hello! This is Pepe calling from Ecuador once again. I am glad to report that I am feeling a lot better! I got a good rest today, and that helped a lot.
The weather was quite changeable today. We had a little rain, then sun, then snow, then sun again. It's been a little crazy! But, despite all that, the group summited this morning at 7 am! They left at 1 am early this morning and made it in just six hours. These guys are really fast. That’s great time!
I met the group at the hut on Cayambe thbis afternoon and brought them down to Hacienda Guachala. So tonight it's going to be rest, relaxation, and a lot of good food, and tomorrow we’re heading to the hot springs.
Everyone’s doing very well – tired, but very excited to have summited beautiful Cayambe. I’ll call again tomorrow."
