Cumbre! It was a perfect day for our Ojos del Salado and Aconcagua combo expedition team on their first objective. The team reached the summit of the highest volcano on the planet under perfect weather and looks forward to a day of rest ahead before they turn their sights to Aconcagua. Expedition leader, Terray Sylvester checks in with this dispatch from Chile:

100% summit success on Ojos del Salado today! We had a great climb in perfect weather to the top of the planet’s highest volcano, and the second-highest mountain in South America. We’re now resting in base camp and looking forward to our hotel near the beach in Bahía Inglesa tomorrow evening.
