Boleslav wrote:How was the trail? I have very nice new mountaineering boots and am contemplating if I should bring them, I do not want to destroy them if the hike/ climb is on the rocks, sharp scree.

kevin trieu wrote:I just read your Plan & Partners. We should exchange emails and see if our schedule match for climbs in Ecuador/Bolivia/Chile/Argentina. I'm also interested in Chimborazo. I'll also be attempting Huscaran Sur again as I only got to 19,000' on my last attempt.

Did your group split into smaller and the guides were hording them or did everyone just go in their own pace?
