Phil called in this afternoon to report that they had 10 of 12 on top of Cotopaxi in beautiful weather! They’re en route to Hacienda Tierra del Volcan tonight and off to San Augustine tomorrow before heading to climb Cayambe. Nice work team!
Eben called in this morning as well to report that his team has camp established at C2 and are planning on carrying to High Camp tomorrow. It’s a touch windy down there now, but that’s normal for Aconcagua. Their summit window may shift a little due to the forecast but we’ll see how that plays out in a couple days. Follow their progress via the SPOT Tracker Eben is carrying.
Mike Hamill and his team continue to wait it out in Punta Arenas. Hopefully the part to the IL76 arrives soon so they can trade places Greg and his team on the ice in Antarctica.
