Here we go – Aaron Mainer and his successful Vinson team are at the Union Glacier – eating, drinking and generally celebrating their success. Earliest they can fly off is tomorrow but mother nature controls all.
On Aconcagua, our third team of the season is ready to move to C1 tomorrow. The current good weather stretch has been a long one and we’re hoping nothing changes.
In Ecuador, Luke and team got chased off Cayambe by a lightning storm. Not much to do there other than retreat and go enjoy the hot springs in Papallacta. Several members head off tomorrow to make an attempt on Chimborazo. Reports on the climbing conditions are reasonable so they’re going to take a shot.
And, that’s all the news from IMG international trips, at least as of today.
