Good news from South America. The team stood on top today, January 2nd. Weather was never perfect but never bad. Sort of threatening all day but nothing ever materialized and the winds stayed low. Just what the doctor ordered for the team to summit. They’ll head to Plaza Mulas on the 3rd and be at the trail head on the 4th. Nice job, gang. Aconcagua may be one of the world’s most underestimated mountains. Make no mistake, climbing Aconcagua without porters and pre-established camps is a real mountaineering challenge.
Congratulations to Eben and crew.
