Mountain Trip Team Summits Chimborazo Today

The climbers, Alan, Phil, and our guide Pablo summitted Chimborazo today!  Chimborazo is the highest peak in Ecuador at 20,564 ft/6,268 meters.  The summit day typically starts at around 11pm the night before as we want to climb the mountain before the sun has a chance to warm things up and avalanche/rockfall hazards increase.  It makes for a long night and day of climbing, but they were rewarded with a beautiful morning on the summit of Chimborazo.  Congratulations to the climbers on a super successful trip!

After returning to the lodge and meeting Courtney and Sullivan, they all drove down to the resort town of Banos where they will spend the night at a lovely spa hotel.

Here’s Pablo checking in from Banos at the end of a great trip to Ecuador!
