Aconcagua Summit

A bluebird afternoon at Camp 2 (19,350 feet).

Thanks for all the well wishes! On Jan 18th @ 2:30 pm, after 8.5 hours of up, The Team summitted in full Argentine conditions (blinding steak and wine). We´re just leaving base camp now and should arrive in Mendoza tomorrow night. Looking forward to one last asado on the trail.

Leaving Camp 2 on Summit Day.

A brief respite from the wind on the descent from the summit.

I bet there's some 'madness' going on in Mendoza - of the good kind no doubt! We MUST ski together in March!
