Guide Gaspar Navarrete called at 8:22 am PST on Nov. 8th with the following dipatch:
Hi it's Gaspar calling from Cayambe. We reached the summit 1 hour ago. Now we are just below the summit enjoying shelter from the wind, changing clothes, and having a drink.
We had a 100% success rate today. ("Thank you Gaspar! that was fun." and "Yeahhhh!" yelled by climbers in the background). Now we are heading down the mountain, we will take about 2 hours to get back to the refuge. I'll call this afternoon to let you know how it went.
