2019 Ecuador Cotopaxi Skills Expedition (Trip 6: June 01-10, 2019) Dispatch 2

Ecuador High Altitude Trip Report

Guide: Romel Sandoval

 Chris B., Brian R., Mengezi N.

After two days of heavy rain and strong wind, the team took advantage of a good weather window to make their summit bid up Cayambe. The team pushed up to 17,000 ft. in agreeable weather but the altitude got the better of them and they made the decision to descend for some rest and recovery. Although the team is disappointed not to have made the summit, Bryan reports that they're still in high spirits and that the cultural aspect of the trip has been a high point.
