Ecuador Volcanoes Expedition Dispatches

Climb Ecuador's Volcanoes: November 6 – 21, 2010

climbing Ecuador Volcanoes

Berg Adventures 2010 Ecuador team will land in Quito and prepare to climb the glaciers of the highest volcanoes in the Central Andes.

Starting off with Ecuador’s third highest summit, Cayambe at 5,790m/18,900ft, they will review basic mountaineering skills and have their first acclimatization climb.

The second climb is Cotopaxi where we will climb to 5,900m/19,350ft. The symmetry of this beautiful glaciated volcano is world famous and it is the second highest volcano in Ecuador.

Last but not least is the summit of Chimborazo, at 6310m/20,701ft. It is the furthest point from the Earth`s centre due to the equatorial bulge (or diameter at the equator). It's actually 2.1 km further than the summit of Everest!

Join the team as they go for the summit of some of the highest volcanoes in the Americas.
