Aconcagua season has ended with the return of our 4th successful team. 4 for 4 – we’ll take it. More importantly, everyone’s back with all fingers and toes intact!
This is a tough mountain, particularly when it’s climbed in good style. IMG needs to take a moment and again congratulate all the teams for their amazing efforts. Four strong, independent teams who worked together, shared in all the efforts and were then able to celebrate the rewards that striving together as a team provides. Nicely done, gang. I’ll end this dispatch and this season with a quote from one of the climbers on this 4th and final expedition.
“Just finished the trip a week ago and it was awesome! Couldn’t say enough nice things about Mike, Ty, and Martin. They are all world class guys who worked their asses off and I would not want to do another trip without these guys! IMG was the best on the mountain!”
