Winter in the States means it’s climbing season in Argentina, and a busy one it will be for IMG.
Our first program starts next week and will be led by Eben Reckord and Kelly Ryan. Eben and Kelly will head down to Mendoza tomorrow, a couple days before the rest of the group, to get things in order. On the To Do List is to rendezvous with our friend Martin in Mendoza, sort gear, shop for food then meet the group on the 20th.
If all goes as planned they’ll spend Christmas at Plaza de Argentina (Base Camp), New Year’s Eve in a tent at Camp II and New Year’s Day en route to Camp III. No champagne for these guys but not a bad way to spend the holidays!
Eben will be carrying a SPOT tracker along the way so we’ll keep our eyes on how the team does and keep you posted.
