Does anyone have recommendations for a glacier school in Quito? I tried moggley but they're not running classes unless I have 2 people. Thanks.

I'm contacting the ASEGUIM (Ecuador's Association of Mountain Guides) for you. :idea:
Will keep you posted.

:idea:
Received this from Marcial President of ASEGUIM (national association of mountain guides). He provides the following services:

“Saludos Ario, te explico mas detalles, se puede realizar uno o mas dias en el nevado del Cayambe dependiendo de la necesidad de los turistas, se enseña tipos de nudos sus usos, tecnica y usos del material grampones cuerda piqueta etc, rescate auto rescate, escalada deportiva en paredes de hielo, aseguramiento entre otras cosas el costo por dia es de 60 dolares mas comida, refuguio y transporte.
si deseas mas informacion puedes solicitar
se puede facilitar o alquilar el equipo
hasta pronto
marcial”

Bottom line 1 or more days, yours to determine, on Cayambe glaciers; usage of knots, crampons, ice-axe, rope, self arresting, ice climbing, belaying; cost 60$/day not including transportation (Ario> I believe 60$ to 100$), food and refuge / hut if you choose a 2 or more day program.
He can help you find / rent the technical gear (Ario> I understand not included in the price, I Believe you can rent the crampons, ice-axe, plastic boots for 20$ max / day).

If interested e-mail Marcial Amable: "marcial1[at]hotmail[dot]com"

Hope you'll find a training that will fulfill your needs,
Ario
