Date Climbed: Nov 26, 2015
Left Carrel refugio at 10pm on Nov. 25, 2015 with a full moon in a clear sky with great weather and perfect snow/ice conditions. Alex (USA), Christian (Germany), myself and guides Manuel and Segundo arrived at Veintimilla's summit in about 7 hours. Great views of Cotopaxi, Illinizas, Antisana, Cayambe and Sangay. We continued up to Whymper 6,310 m, through the same snow and fragile ice formations covering both summits. We made our descent by the same route. Rock fall danger from El Castillo to "el corredor". Some wind in parts of ascent, but nothing more than 10-20mph. No falls and only one small avalanche observed. We were the only 5 on the mountain that day.

Boriss Andean

Climbed with great weather and perfect snow/ice conditions. Edgar, Ran (Israel) and I got to Veintimilla's summit in about 4 hours from the refuge. Great views of Cotopaxi, Illinizas, Antisana, Cayambe and Sangay.

We continued up to Whymper 6,310 m (20,561 ft), this time with soft knee deep snow. Got to the top in a good time, but clouds rolled in pretty fast.

We made our descent by the same route. Rock fall danger from El Castillo to "el corredor".
