Description

I am looking for climbers to join me for a climbing trip to Ecuador from Friday November 29 to Saturday December 14, 2013. I am doing this as a guided trip through Andes Trek Expeditions. Their Website is: http://www.goandestrek.com/

The cost for this trip is approximately 2250 per person. This does not include flight, airport fees, spending money, etc. I have made a down deposit on this trip and am definitely going. Currently, I am the only climber registered for this trip.

Climbers must have scrambling and mountaineering experience with a bit of altitude experience. ATE will ask you what your experience is when you register.

The current itinerary that I have arranged with ATE is listed below. It will be updated as I have decided to stay through until Saturday December 14.

If you have any questions, please let me know.
