The news continues to be good from Argentina and the slopes of Aconcagua. Team leader, Mike Hamill, just phoned in. The team has made their move to C1 at 16,200’. The weather is perfect and everyone’s doing well. It has been quite windy the last couple of weeks. Weather now is excellent and forecast is favorable for at least another several days. All that’s excellent news. Lots can change between now and the summit bid, but all’s as good as we could hope for at the present. We’ll take it.
