Climbing Cotopaxi and other adventures in Ecuador

As many of you know, I was down in Ecuador recently climbing Cotopaxi and photographing for Eddie Bauer & First Ascent

It was a great trip with Melissa Arnot, Jeff Dossett, and cameraman Bob Poole. And, we made the summit of Cotopaxi, a peak I had not topped out on before. 

Quite a stunning climb, and we were fortunate enough to see many other places in Ecuador as well. 

The dispatches – and many of my images – are up on the First Ascent blog now. Swing on over and check them out!!
