Greetings from Camp 3 on Aconcagua. Our team just returned after a successful summit bid with some happy and tired faces. We are looking forward to a little bit of dinner and some much needed rest before we start heading down, down, down tomorrow. All is well out here. Thanks for all the good wishes back home and we’ll talk to you guys further on down the trail.

A big CONGRATS to Steve and team for bagging one of the Seven Summits. Can’t wait to see the pics from the top. I hope the views were awesome as they’re always too brief.

Safe hike on the way down and keep your guard up.
