Ecuador is the best place to learn the fundamentals of High Altitude Mountaineering on the planet.
We guide more Ecuador expeditions than any other country throughout the year; we know it like the back of our hand. Ecuador is the first place that our founder, Adrian Ballinger, climbed, and its been our favorite country to climb in ever since. The access to 5,000 and 6,000m peaks in Ecuador is unparalleled, and the incredible lodging and infrastructure at each mountain makes the expedition the best of both worlds – adventure and vacation. From our Ecuador Climbing School to a Rapid Ascent of Cotopaxi, our Ecuador expeditions are our most popular trips.
