Time, again, to relay updates from our teams in South America and Antarctica.
Let’s start with Vinson Massif. I literally just spoke with Luke Reilly and team on the summit of Vinson. Not a puff of wind and all members doing well and standing on the summit. High camp tonight and Vinson base camp tomorrow. That’s everything we could hope for. Congratulations.
Jay Lyons and Romulo Cardenas called me earlier today from Chimborazo. Two out of three summits for the team isn’t bad. Wanted that third but it just wasn’t to be. Everyone’s safe and pleased with their efforts.
Nickel Wood and team called to say the carry went quite well today to Camp 2. Team performed well and made the carry in good time. One more night at Camp 1 and they expect to move into Camp 2 tomorrow. Good, steady progress on Aconcagua.
That’s all for now!
