#4 - Ecuador High Altitude Expedition - Dec. 14th- 28th, 2012

Climber: Michael Radin (Lynnwood, WA)

Guide: Jose (Pepe) Landazuri

“Hi again. This is Pepe calling to let you know that we succeeded in climbing Cayambe! We started climbing 1AM this morning and made good time all the way up the route. We arrived at the summit at 7AM.

The weather has cooperated beautifully for us, and the conditions for cramponing were excellent. We’re back at the hut resting and having some things to eat and soon we will be leaving and heading down to Hacienda Guachala.

Tomorrow we may go to a hot springs. We’ll decide in the morning, but basically tomorrow will be for resting and reflecting on today’s accomplishment. We are looking forward to our next climb of Cotopaxi, but for now, we are enjoying today’s success! We will probably call tomorrow and let you know what we are doing. But we are happy and feeling really good! Bye for now.”
