It takes Baltazar Ushca five hours to walk to the ice mine on Mount Chimborazo, the highest mountain in Ecuador, that has fed him and his family for generations. The path is steep, and both wind and sunshine are strong at 4,500m (14,700ft). At 68, he appears visibly tired as he picks the ice and shapes it into blocks he can transport down to Riobamba, the nearest city, by mule. Ushca's weather-beaten face reflects years of exposure to the wind and sun. He has never worn sunglasses to protect his eyes from the reflected glare of the sun on the snow. Ushca is Ecuador's last hielero, or iceman, a craft passed on from father to son for centuries. He has made the trip to the ice mine at Mount Chimborazo at least once a week since he was 15. Before fridges, natural ice was used to refrigerate food. Nowadays, ice from Mount Chimborazo is used to make traditional fruit juices or ice creams - people claim it has natural healing properties. All the other hieleros have passed away or found easier and better-paying jobs. But Ushca's attachment to his trade has served him well. His reputation as the last iceman has brought him fame and dozens of international film crews have followed him up Mount Chimborazo. He recently flew to New York City for the premiere of one of the many documentaries that have been made about him. Locally, he is also renowned. At La Merced market where he sells the ice, people of all ages ask to have their photos taken with him. He has brushed shoulders with Ecuador's President Rafael Correa and other politicians, who have hailed his work as part of the country's cultural heritage. Ushca dismisses the story, put about by some in his community, that he has become rich. He says he is happy to work on the mountain, which indigenous people regard as sacred. I am happy when I walk. Father Chimborazo looks after me, he says in broken Spanish. He is more at ease in Quechua, the most widely spoken indigenous language in the Andes. Nowadays it is only Juan, his son-in-law, who keeps him company. The two leave their community of Cuatro Esquinas everyday around 07:00 and reach the ice mine, called Los Hieleros, around midday. These days, there seems to be a different option for Ushca - an option of which his son-in-law, Juan, is very aware. Juan charges foreigners $60 ( 55) a day for an excursion to the ice mine. He believes he could charge more to see a real iceman in action, and he hopes he can take over his father-in-law's job when he retires. Hopefully this tradition will continue, he says. Juan might be right. While modern technology has made some trades obsolete, turning the iceman into a tourist attraction might help this ancient tradition survive. Adapted from 6 21.
