Death in Ecuador

The Calgary Herald has a story on a Death in Ecuador involving a young woman who was climbing the volcano Cotopaxi. I climbed this volcano in late 2009. The route to the summit often changes from one year to the next based on local conditions, so it’s possible that this year’s route has more objective hazard than did the route when I climbed it.
