Aconcagua Expedition: Back at High Camp After Successful Summit

“You don’t need a weatherman to know which way the wind blows. . . “

After nearly two weeks of hard work here in the Andes, our team stood on top of the tallest mountain in either North or South America!  Congratulations on a job well done.  We had to earn it today, climbing through the chilly pre-dawn winds into a whiteout summit.  Occasionally the surrounding peaks popped out, only to retreat behind an opaque veil that became our visual reality as we ascended the Canaleta to the summit.  A fine day in the mountains nonetheless and everyone should be proud of a tough, safe and successful climb.  Tomorrow we start the long voyage back to Mendoza, retracing the steps taken a few weeks ago back to civilization.  Thanks for all the support from the homeland and we’ll be seeing you soon.
