Hello! This is Ludmila Korobeshko Ecuador from the expedition to the top of the most distant from the center of the Earth (Chimborazo).

December 30, we arrived at the mountain refuge at the base of Cayambe volcano at an altitude of 4600m. By the way, the cone of this volcano is located precisely on the equator, and this peak is the highest on the equator (5780m). And still on the way to the refuge, we crossed the equator five times, the final - at an altitude of 4200 m. In the evening we went to acclimatize to 4800. The wind was very strong and moist. We returned dripping wet. Nevertheless, the next morning we went to ice climbing training. Again we returned wet. At 16.00 on Ecuador at midnight Moscow time we celebrated New Year's Eve and went to sleep for a few hours before the upcoming summit bid.

At midnight, from 31 to 1th along the Ecuadorian New Year's custom, we burned an effigy. And we started the climb. We were on the top at 6.30 a.m. not all, but in a good mood. The weather was good.
At 9:30 a.m. we were already at the refuge, and an hour later went south to Baños. Now we rest in hacienda near the volcano Kilotoa. Tomorrow is a rest day, and we will visit the lake in the crater of the volcano.
January 3, we're going to Chimborazo, and on the night of January 4 go to the assault.
