Ver "El último hielero del Chimborazo Ecuador" 1:15:52 minute documentary in Spanish, no subtitles. Calentamiento de la Tierra no derrite al último hielero de Ecuador. Taita (papá) Baltasar Ushca es el último hielero del Chimborazo. Este hombre a sus 63 años de edad todavía arranca una parte de las nieves eternas del Coloso de los Andes, el Chimborazo (6.310 metros sobre el nivel del mar). Su actividad la inició a los 13 años de edad cuando todavía no existían las fábricas de hielo y la única manera de saborear un helado en Riobamba era con el hielo que Baltasar arrancaba al "Taita Chimborazo".
