Aconcagua: Beren & Team Recap Summit Day

Elevation: 19,600'

Lying in the tent, legs sore but oddly relaxed, it seems hard to believe that we climbed Aconcagua today. This morning we launched before dawn, making our way higher and higher into the troposphere as the rising sun cast a shadow of our mountain deep into the Andes. Everyone on the team got a chance to test their limits today and I’m proud of everyone’s effort. It takes a few weeks to get to where you can try to stand on top and everyone’s hard work really paid off with a safe day in the mountains. Good work team and thanks to all the wonderful people back home for their support.

You guys are great. Thanks to the guides for getting everybody up there. Bill is coming home soon… I guess I have to start cleaning the house again.
