2019 Ecuador Cotopaxi Skills Expedition (Trip 5 May 18 - 27, 2019) Dispatch 2

Ecuador High Altitude Trip Report

Guide: Franklin Varela

Climber: Nicolas Nolen

On Tuesday, May 28th we got our second dispatch from Nick Nolan calling in to report on the progress of his climbs in the Ecuadorian Andes.

He and Franklin just came down from Cotopaxi after "tough but great" climb. Nick says that windy and cold conditions made the climb a difficult one, but that the solid snowpack gave them confidence to move up the mountain safely. Nick was thrilled to announce that they made the summit!

They are now on their way to the first Chimborazo camp and will call again after their ascent.
