Winter Wonderland in Ecuador!

The weather is turning for colder temperatures and holiday decorations are starting to appear in department stores. We know what that means... Ecuador season is back! In fact, Mountain Madness climbers are kicking off the winter Ecuador season with an Antisana and Illiniza Sur expedition, followed by a Chimborazo summit attempt!

Our team has arrived and already enjoyed the culturally intriguing tour of Quito and the delicious cuisine of Hacienda Rumiloma while recovering from their travels and preparing for the climbs to come. Today they completed their first acclimatization hike on Rucu Pichincha. While they experienced some wet weather, they still enjoyed their climb and are looking forward to the more challenging objectives ahead.
