Chimborazo’s ice pickers have long been subjected for years to the inclemency of the volcano, located in the Ecuadorian Andes. In exchange, they crush some of its ice to provide for their people. Nowadays, it would be an occupation on the verge of extinction if it wasn’t for Baltazar Ushca, who despite of his age, walks to the Chimborazo glacier every day for hours to get large blocks of ice which he later sells in the nearest city.
