Corazón Summit!

Guide Estalin Suárez and climbers Carter B. and Saskia J. on the summit of Corazón

Our Ecuador Volcanoes team continued their acclimatizing today with the hike up the inactive, eroded stratovolcano Corazón (4790m/15,720ft).  Lead guide, Estalin Suárez has the day’s audio expedition dispatch:

Hello, this is Estalin calling in for the Madison Mountaineering Ecuador Volcanoes expedition.  Today is December 6th.

So, today we hiked up to the summit of the Corazón volcano, which is 15,700 ft.  The weather wasn’t that good. It was a little bit foggy and a little bit windy.  But, yeah, we summit!  We did around seven hours up and down.  The weather didn’t help so much, but anyway, we’ve been having fun training for the next mountains.

Carter and Saskia are feeling well and getting used to the altitude.  So we are now at the lodge, just having a rest and looking forward for the next mountains.

Bye!
