2017 Ecuador Cayambe/Antisana Skills Expedition and Chimborazo Extension (June 16 - 30) Dispatch 4

June 27th Dispatch

Climbers: Kirsty Ross, Timothy Szwarc, Philipp Eglseer

Guide: Estalin Suarez

Kristy called this morning with the dispatch for Day 12:

We just wanted to give you a quick update from our trip. I think last time we spoke, we were at the hacienda after climbing Cayambe. Since then we made an attempt on Antisana. We had beautiful views of the mountains from the camp. The night was clear to start off with, but then the weather came in towards the summit, so we were not able to reach the summit. But we all agreed it was for the best. We were still able to climb to about 5200 meters (17,061 feet), so it was a very good climb.

We are now on our way to the Chimborazo hut. The weather is still cloudy, but we are hoping for a good break on Chimborazo so we can attempt the summit.
