Artem Rostovtsev,  a guide of the 7 Summits Club: Hello everyone! The group "Ecuador avant-garde", after climbing the rocks under the snow and rain, slightly adjusted the plans. Yesterday we moved to the shelter at Chimborazo with two goals. We wanted to spend the night high, and therefore more effectively acclimatized. And we wanted to make sure that the forecasts of heavy snowfalls do not lie. The second question we have closed yet at the entrance-approach. That's it - snow is in abundance, the mountain has not seen it for more than 10 years. There is a path  only up to 5600. With the first task, we also coped, 8 hours of sleep-half-asleep passed at altitude. Now we are going down to rest in Baños.

 

 The shelters are empty, there are no daredevils.
