Today is an auspicious day for our Ecuador team. Helmut Linzbichler is being awarded the lifetime honorary title of “Professor” back home in Austria, and award being presented to him by the President of his country. Helmut is unable to accept the award in person, however, as he is standing on the top of Cotopaxi, an iconic 19,348′ (5897m) volcano, with a stunning, steaming crater at the summit!
Congratulations to the team! It sounds like you had a great day of climbing and we look forward to sharing some photos from the day, when you get back to Quito.
Here’s Seba, calling from the summit:
