Ecuador 2009 Wrap Up - December 2009


img_20751.jpg

The Dec 2009 Ecuador Expedition was great! That was the third trip I've lead down there and I plan to go back for many more in the years to come. We had mellow hikes on trail to help acclimatize, snowing and blowing snow and ice climbing, amazing Ecuadorian food, a massive cravasse blocking our route, beautiful sunny summit days, and much more, all in one trip... I love the big glaciated volcanoes, the high altitude huts, the climbing, the people and the culture. The great Haciendas we hang out at between climbs are pretty great as well. Every year we hook up with Luis, for his driving, cooking of local cuisine, and tons of logistics. He IS the man down in Ecuador. I'll let a pile of photos tell the story...

Enjoy,
