Mike Hamill, Aconcagua team leader called in the past two days during the holiday weekend. On February 13 he called at approximately 3pm PST. He reported that all was well on the mountain. A couple of team members were feeling some mild effects from the altitude and overall effort of the trip, but everyone was OK. If weather permits, the team will summit in the morning.
On February 14 Mike called to report that the team was back at high camp having successfully reached the summit! 9 of 13 team members reached the actual summit, but all gave it their very best and are now resting at high camp after a safe descent. Tomorrow the team will head down to Plaza de Mules Base Camp. All is well and the team sends their love and good wishes to friends and family back home.
Congratulations to the team for a job well done!
