Just got off two phone calls – one from the Vinson crew and the another from Aconcagua.
Let’s start with the big news – 100% on top of Vinson Massif – AGAIN! Aaron Mainer called from the ‘top of the bottom’ to let me know that all of his team and he were on the summit. Super job, guys! Great weather and one happy group. Our congratulations to them all.
Grand total for the season is 21/21 customers on top. That’s a testament to our climbers and to our guides.
On Aconcagua, Josh Tapp called in to say they were eating dinner at Casa Piedra. This is Day 2 on the approach for this very strong team. Josh reports good weather but also a good number of tents at camp. No problem, it’s a big mountain.
