All is Well in Ecuador

Two mountaineers navigating a glacier on a Gasherbrum II Expedition

We just got a quick update that things are off to a great start in Ecuador. After climbing to the summit of Rucu Pichincha yesterday, the team moved on to the glacier today and practiced their skills, learning and refreshing their cramponing techniques, and becoming more comfortable with basic glacier travel. Their plan in to head for the summit tomorrow night after another day of easy acclimatization walks, plenty of hydration, and rest. We’re excited to hear how things go!
