Team “Sí se puede” summits Chimborazo (6,310m/20,702ft)!! Big congrats!!!

Hello! Checking in from Sí Se Puede on Sunday morning? Saturday morning, Saturday morning, one of these mornings. And we had 2 people summit Chimborazo this morning! Beautiful conditions, no wind, no rain, no clouds, it was absolutely amazing! It was much harder than Cotopaxi. The few who climbed it was myself, Ross, and Ed. Frances got a little caught up on the glacier early in the morning, had to come back down. Shatayu was relaxing, sleeping in.

All together, it’s been a great trip for me, this is the evening of my summer in Ecuador, and it was a helluva way to end it. It was awesome! So I just want to say Hi Mom and Dad, love you guys! I love you Chelsea, talk to you soon and we’re done climbing mountains, so you guys can stop worrying about me falling off a cliff and dying (laughter) love you, here’s Ed.

Jose Luis, for spearheading any…

Jaime, our driver, for making sure we were where we needed to get…”
