IMG’s Aconcagua team is climbing now. All were doing well when I spoke with Nickel yesterday from high camp. Three guides are with them, so we’re hoping for the best. He was expecting all members to take a shot at the summit, but we don’t know until we know. When we get definitive news, we’ll let you know.
The Vinson team is doing well in Antarctica. Jonathan Schrock let us know last night that the big descent from high camp to base camp was completed yesterday without issue. As soon as weather permits, they’ll fly to Union Glacier and then start winging their way home.
The team is where they should be after summiting, and everyone is happy and healthy.
