I’m happy to report that today our team made it to the top of Aconcagua (22,834′) at approximately 3:30 PM local time.  The conditions today were near perfect, hardly any wind and clear views. It was a long climb up from our high camp, and after about 7 hours we reached the “roof” of South America!  I’m really proud of all our climbers who worked together, supported and encouraged each other throughout this expedition, as Aconcagua is no small mountain!  We have prepared many months for this challenge, and it is a great feeling of accomplishment to have succeeded.  Thanks for following along!
