"At the top, you get a feeling..." Ecuador Off The Beaten Path Tip by Jon_Nordmark

Ecuador Off The Beaten Path: 75 reviews and 94 photos


At the top, you get a feeling of exhilaration. I fell in a crevasce, very close to the summit. While crossing a snow bridge, the ice cracked and I dropped down. My friends and my arms caught me. Their rope and my arms. This happened about 300 feet from the summit. That experience was scary, and because the snow was getting wet, we turned around at that point. Still, a very exhillerating trip to the top and the ridge of an 'active' volcano. This picture is looking into the volcano's mouth.

Review Helpfulness: 1.5 out of 5 stars
