Climbers: Todd & Priscilla Clayton, Meril Moen, Piotr Stapor, Jonathan Deffenbaugh
Guide: Romel Sandoval
Romel called Thursday afternoon to let us know that the group made a successful summit climb today on 15,080-foot Cayambe!
Three of our climbers were able to reach the summit, while the others opted to stay at a lower elevation and wait for the summit climbers return.
The weather was good, and one climber said, "It was just fantastic to step onto the top of such a great mountain. Totally exhilarating!" Everyone was quite excited about the team's successful day. They are all now enjoying big dinner and a restful evening at Hacienda Guachala. Tomorrow will be a rest day at another lodge before they head to their next climbing goal, Antisana.
