AAI Guide Jeremy Devine called in this morning with an update of the Chimborazo climb.
"Hey this is Jeremy Devine in Ecuador. It is 7AM on December 2nd, 2015.
Just giving everyone a quick update of our climb.
Everyone made it down safely from Chimborazo. Unfortunately, we were not successful. We got turned back due to some very high winds on the upper mountain. We turned around at about 5,400m (approximately 17,700ft).
Yeah, estimated about 50MPH winds which were making it impossible to ascend any higher so we made the safe decision to turn around.
Everyone is doing very well and is in high spirits. We will call again soon and give you another update. Thanks. Bye."
