Josh Tapp called it at 7:30 am Pacific time from the summit of Aconcagua. One member returned early but the others were able to persevere and stood on top. Congratulations for a job VERY well done. Now, they need to stay focused and get back to high camp. The team will descend tomorrow to Plaza Mulas, on the Horcones Valley side of the mountain, completing their traverse. One long day later and they will be heading for Mendoza.
