Greetings from Ecuador! Today at 07.30 am local time we all  together  reached the summit of Chimborazo, 6310m!!!  Hurray!! It was difficult. There is a fairly steep and long ice slope on Chimborazo. We had to go out at 00.00 (and get up at 22.30), because by lunchtime avalanches, rockfalls and very often thunderstorms, wind and blizzard. But we did it! And then we went down first to the upper camp at 5350 m, then to the hut at 4850 m, got on the bus and we are in Quito at 2900 m! Crazy day, the team - well done, thanks to the weather, all well done! We can rest at last. With you were guides Viktor Ershov and Edgar Parra.

We climbed the mountain Illiniza Norte, 5126, all together, quickly and accurately! Start was early in the morning - about 6.30 am, 3 hours up, sometimes had to climb that for almost all participants it was the first time.  Therefore, the ascent was emotional and bright, despite the fogs, and a little rain on the descent.   We went straight down to the Parking lot and went to a cool hotel, which resembles both a Museum, a Park and a castle - an ancient and interesting place.

Next in our plans – Chimborazo!

Victor Ershov, guide the 7 Summits Club

 Hello, dears! This morning enjoyed a wonderful view of the Cotopaxi for breakfast.  We even watched a fly of a hummingbird, but did not have time to take a picture of it. After breakfast we went to the parking  at 4600m on the slope of volcano Cotopaxi, reached the glacier, held ice-snow classes for the guys and reached a height of 5200m. On road down was greeted Andian wolf and again local hares. The nature of Ecuador never ceases to amaze!
