Our Ecuador Volcanoes continued their perfect summit streak by reaching the trip ultimate summit of Cotopaxi, the second-highest point in Ecuador! Lead guide, Estalin Suárez has the day’s audio expedition dispatch:
Hello, this is Estalin calling in for the Madison Mountaineering Ecuador Volcanoes expedition. I’m glad to say that today we got the summit of Cotopaxi, which is 19,347 ft. With this we finish our 9-day climbing tour in Ecuador with 100% success!
Yesterday we started, more or less, at midnight. It took us six hours to reach the summit and then less than three hours down. We had an amazing day – really good weather, almost perfect! Carter and Saskia are very, very happy with the results of our expedition.
Enjoy the pictures and visit Ecuador!
