IMG Guide Kim Sieradzki checked in from Ecuador right before the team headed out to the hut on Cayambe. After a great hike of Imbabura (15,109ft) yesterday with more great weather, the team stopped off for the night at Hacienda Guachala. this is one of the older hacienda’s and the team enjoyed local food for dinner and a nice place to spend the last night before heading to the Refugio on Cayambe.
The team will spend the night at the Oleas-Ruales-Berge Hut (15,902′) on Cayambe (18,996′). Tomorrow, they will hike and do some training on the lower glacier which will put them in position to summit on Wednesday!
