Topic: What’s involved in climbing a 6000m peak in Ecuador and other adventures
Speaker: Dave Drohan
Notes: Climbing some of the high peaks in Ecuador are technically easy, yet only about half of those who try, succeed in reaching the summit.  I did succeed in summiting two of those volcanoes in 2019. My high point was 6278m.  Come along to discover the travels of the small team I was involved with, as well as the amazing experience of watching a solar eclipse in Chile, walking an ancient Inca trail and skiing over the equator.

 

 

 

Due to current restrictions we are limited to only 20 people at the social meetings.  You will need to pre-book if you wish to attend.
