The inactive Volcano is covered in ICE! Only extremely brave climbers dare this, with picks and other … serious and not so serious … tools… ahem!
I’ve never climbed a glacier before, not like THIS! (hot glacier training a must)
Found in the Avenida de los Volcanes, Andes range, Chimborazo is no walk in the park. After a full 12 hr+ day of awesome mt. climbing, frozen fingers dial the masseuse. Next time, schedule the spa day in advance! and extra hand warmers… yep!
Cool Fact: The unique volcano rises a good 3,967.1 mi from the center of the Earth! (my question… who measured? the Mole people? Okay okay, settle down scifi nerd!)
