Rikki’s Aconcagua team is at high camp today. All members are doing well, weather is reasonable, and they intend to take a summit shot Sunday morning. That’s the real important news from down south. Wish them luck. Forecast is favorable, as I mentioned.
Robert’s Aconcagua group is doing well, too. They’re through their medical checks at Aconcagua base camp and building their acclimatization foundation by climbing high and sleeping low. A carry day and a move day to each camp, with a rest thrown in as needed.
Meanwhile down in Patagonia, Jonathan and team are just having more fun than they likely imagined. Some nights in tents, some nights in huts and every day new scenery and memorable hiking. It’s just a good trip.
Send Rikki, Martin and crew good thoughts.
