2017 Ecuador Cayambe/Antisana Skills Expedition (November 4-18) - Dispatch 4

November 10th Dispatch

Randy Rainey
Mikko Lautala
Rasmus Mikkel Munter Lassen

Guide: Romel Sandoval

Hello, all!

This is Romel, calling with an update after our summit of Cayambe, today. We had perfect weather with excellent views all the way to the top! Our group reached the summit at 6:00am.

It is now late in the day, and climbers are enjoying some well-deserved rest. Randy, Mikko, and Rasmus are quite tired, but thrilled to have enjoyed such nice climbing, already. They have all turned-in for the night, but hopefully one of them will be available for our next dispatch.

Tomorrow our journey takes us to the Antisana foothills. We'll rest and recover from our Cayambe climb as we drive south through the Andean village of Pintag and into the beautiful wilderness area of the Antisana Reserve. We'll spend the night in a local hacienda before continuing onto the Antisana Base Camp.
