More information:
“Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness, and many of our people need it sorely on these accounts. Broad, wholesome, charitable views of men and things cannot be acquired by vegetating in one little corner of the earth all one’s lifetime.” -Mark Twain

“Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside in a cloud of smoke, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming "Wow! What a Ride!” ― Hunter S. Thompson

"The mountains are calling and I must go." --John Muir

This shows the original Whymper Route, now melted out.  Panoramic photo of Chimborazo from the Whymper Hut. The Standard Route heads left to an ice shelf below "The Castle", traverses right, and onto the glaciated ridge to the summit.   The Whymper Hut on Chimborazo, Ecuador.  Snow capped Chimborazo, with Carrel Hut and Whymper Hut just visible in the middle of the photo. The <a href='/v/standard-route/110735330'>Standard Route</a> ascends the left side, below the "The Castle" rock formation and up the large snow shoulder to the summit. The original <a href='/v/whymper-route/110735327'>Whymper Route</a> ascended the now dirt shoulder to the right of the Whymper Hut.   View of the huge cliff face at Bull Hollow.
