This is Krisli calling in from Madison Mountaineering 2022 Aconcagua expedition.
I have some excellent news! The whole team who we started with in Mendoza has just summitted and we are back safely in Camp 3! We just has some nice beverages and also some snacks. Everybody is in high spirits and we’re looking forward to heading back to base camp for some warm showers tomorrow and some more beverages, maybe. Haha.
Everybody’s doing great and we have an excellent team. Everybody been super casual and super nice. The weather has been amazing today, we were so lucky – clear skies and beautiful views.
I think that’s me over and out. Lots of love to everybody, family, and friends. Bye now!
