The conditions are getting worse and worse due to the erupting neighbor Reventador. The mountian is covered in ash and is all ice. Our lead rope member blew a bridge and took a long fall. After getting high on the mountain and only gaining 10 feet for every 100 feet traveled due to crevasses, be bagged the climb at aroung 18,000.

Horrible snow conditions. The mountain was covered by debris from a volcanic eruption nearby (not Cayambe) and there had been no recent snow. We crossed many crevasses and there were innumerable penatentes up high.

A spectacular and technical route, with huge crevasses and awe-inspiring glaciers. Ecuador is a wonderful place for climbing volcanoes. We did smell sulfur on the route, indicating at least a little volcanic activity.

One of the most awesome climbs I have ever done. Ecuador is one of the most beautiful countries I've climbed in.
