Aconcagua Expedition: King & Team Make Tough Decision

It’s one of the toughest decisions a guide team makes, when to call it quits below the summit of a big peak. We had great weather until we didn’t. The Team acclimated well and above 18,000’ life gets harder. With winds increasing and our number of days dwindling, we decided to get out of the wind and start the descent to Base Camp. While our climbers are disappointed, they all got two spectacular weeks in the Andes at high altitude, made some new friends and climbing partners. The Team will spend tomorrow at Plaza Argentina and begin the two day walk to the road on the 29th. A huge thanks to a wonderful group of climbers and those that supported them along the way.

Hey Team,
You made an unbelievable climb and a great (albeit tough) decision.
Can’t wait to hear the stories from Neil Yoder! “Family Time” has been very quiet here!
We are so proud of you Neil, and all the rest of you who we will hear all about.
