From the mountains to the coast!

The team on the summit of the planet’s highest volcano!

The Madison Mountaineering team continues to relish in the recent memory of their successful climb on the world’s highest volcano, Ojos del Salado! Their next stop takes them to the Chilean coast where they can spend some time relaxing and eating good meals before they start to look ahead to their next objective, Aconcagua. Expedition leader, Terray Sylvester checks in with this dispatch from Chile:

Hello! This is Terray calling in for the Madison Mountaineering Ojos del Salado (6893m/22,615ft) and Aconcagua (6961m/22,837ft) combination expedition – today is January 7th.

Yesterday we had a fantastic climb on Ojos del Salado! 100% of the team summited, we had excellent weather to the top of the planet’s highest volcano and South America’s second-highest peak. Right now we are en route to Bahía Inglesa (10m/30ft), a nice little beach resort town on the Chilean coast. We’ll spend the night there and then we’ll start making our way to Mendoza, Argentina (746m/2,449ft) for our next climb, Aconcagua, the highest peak in South America.

All is well here and we’ll be in touch tomorrow!
