We received word from Phil today after a great day training on the lower glaciers of Cayambe. If all goes as planned they’ll get an alpine start in the morning and be on the summit by mid-morning.
Further South on Aconcagua, Eben and his team made the move to High Camp today and will get an early start for the summit tomorrow morning. They’re anticipating a cold & windy summit day so they’ll get up a little later than Phil’s team hoping to take advantage of the warmer temps later in the morning. Back at Base Camp Peter Anderson and his team took advantage of a rest day before they make their carry to C1 tomorrow.
And down in Chile our Vinson Team made it back to Punta Arenas and are en route home…finally! We’ll recap this with some photos later on, but for now they’re heading home and that’s all they can ask for.
