i just wanted to throw out the word that i'm looking for someone to climb some big mountains in ecuador. i will be living in quito until the end of march and hope to conquer some of the volcanoes. i am also down to explore all other parts of ecuador, jungle, coast, ect...!
I can't climb with you but I would say that I think you'll love it. I lived there once and have been there (5) times. The ocean, the mountains, and the jungle-they're all awesome. And the people are great too. Good luck.
I'm interested in climbing in Ecuador in the next 2-4 months. I have time, money and the will to do it. Spent a month in Peru in 2003 climbing Pisco Oeste (18, 995') and Huarascan Sur (22,205'). I'm an experienced alpine and rock leader and currently lead climbs for the Mazama Club (Portland OR) and The Chemeketans (Salem OR, my home town).
