IMG guide Greg Vernovage called on the sat phone to report that the team was successful reaching the 21,200 foot summit of Illimani and are now back to the high camp. The weather was good and they had a nice climb. Now they are packing up their tents and gear and will be descending this afternoon back down to the Base Camp. Tomorrow they will finish the descent to the jeeps and will be heading for La Paz. Congratulations, team!!
