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!
