Hello everyone, It’s JJ with Team 3 on Aconcagua. We are all back safe and sound in Base Camp. This will be our last dispatch. Out plan is to walk out part way tomorrow, have an asado dinner with the cowboys, then wake up and head to Mendoza on the 20th.

I would like to take the opportunity to allow our climbers to write a little something on the blog:

Hey guys its Greg. Well it looks like I’ve got a new addiction with headaches nausea and exhaustion what’s not to like. Thanks so much for the messages of love and support it really means a lot out here. See you when I get home.

Hey Paula & Gang - We summited yesterday - it was awesome. We are back at base camp looking forward to the trek out and getting a shower in Mendoza. Love you all tons and thanks for all of the support - a big thanks to the RMI Team who helped with our success!!!

Hi Fam and Friends, its Mike! Thank you all for the love and support along the way, your comments helped gin up the brute doggedness it took to make the summit yesterday. I’ll send pictures from Mendoza, cheers!

Hey everyone in sunny Florida! Todd here. Love to you all, especially Sally and baby girl McClurem. We are hanging out back at Base Camp after descending 4600 feet today. Trying to stay hydrated and warm. Thanks for all the comments. It was so great to know that we have family and friends who are following this crazy adventure. See ya soon!

As the resident geezer on this trip, I would like to thank not only our guides but my fellow climbers as well -  a truly great bunch of men. And all my love to those at home for their support and patience. Hello FrontPoint!

Well folks, from all the guides we would like to thank all who followed us. Geoff, Garrett and myself would like to thank all of our family at the RMI Headquarters in Ashford, WA. Without all of you we would not be as successful as we are.
