Lots of movement south of the border. In Ecuador, Luke and Romulo are heading to Chimborazo with 4 team members. All the pieces need to fall into place but the guys are determined to give it a shot. Members on the regular trip are flying home today after having summited Cotopaxi and Cayambe. Congratulations to all.
On Aconcagua, heck – we’ve got teams everywhere. Mike Hamill is making a carry up from Plaza Mulas today. Mulas is base camp on the Horcones Valley side of the mountain. All is good. Josh Tapp, Martin Lucero and team are back in Mendoza. Showers, beds, wine and steak are the order of the day. They did a heck of a job up high but the mountain simply said no. Peter Anderson, Peter Adams and Leandro Villegas are making a carry to C2. They continue to acclimate, establish progressively high camps and simply get themselves into position to take advantage of whatever opportunities the mountain provides. The chess game continues.
Bottom line – all’s good.
