Red Empire atop Cotopaxi

Green Berets of the 7th Special Forces Group (Airborne), recently accompanied 18 Andeanistas from the Ecuadorian Army’s Grupo Especial de Comandos No 9 (GEK 9), to summit 19,437-foot Cotopaxi in the Andes, one of the world’s highest volcanoes.

At night.

“The ascent allowed the team to implement their high altitude mountaineering equipment as well as techniques taught by the team’s expert mountaineers and Ecuadorian partner force,” notes 7th Group PAO.
