Everest with Mountain Madness

Ecuador School

Ecuador school is now done with four days of train­ing and head­ing back up to Cayambe yes­ter­day for the climb. With their new skills they will work their way up the glac­i­ers of Cayambe in the wee hours of the night.

There is still an oppor­tu­ni­ty to join MM in Feb­ru­ary for a school or sum­mit climbs if you already have expere­ince. Then things sim­mer down a bit dur­ing the rainy sea­son and start back up again in late May or ear­ly June. Stay tuned for an update for the team in the meantime!
