Our third expedition on Aconcagua is back at high camp, safe and sound, after a ‘hell of a go’. Got into the base of the Caneleta this morning but winds and low temperatures kept the crew from making a safe ascent. At the end of the day, discretion always has to win out over valor. 7,000 m is VERY high and summit day is VERY tough. You have to come home intact with 10 fingers and 10 toes. Congratulations to the team for giving it their all.
Base camp tomorrow and they will be eating steak in Mendoza late the following evening. Well done!
