I managed to summit all the peaks and had a wonderful time!

I've got to say the highlight of my time climbing in the Avenue of Volcanoes was reaching the summit of Cayambe.

Our guide was excellent - light hearted, funny, personable - and the overall experience of the trip was great. I felt good being able to work with my guides and help sustain their ability to pursue their passion for climbing.
