Just spoke with Senior Guide, Peter Anderson, on the summit of Aconcagua. 100% on top. Weather is perfect. Perhaps 5 cm of snow overnight. Winds were 20-25 kph when the team started at 5:30 am, their time. However, the wind continued to die throughout the morning, and Peter reports balmy conditions on the summit. The team played their strengths and the weather perfectly. Tremendous effort and a huge success. It couldn’t have gone better.
