Summits all around on Aconcagua!
It’s with great pleasure to announce that the entire Madison Mountaineering team reached the summit of Aconcagua last week! After returning to Mendoza from the mountain, the team celebrated with one last dinner in Argentina – also celebrating the birthday of one of the team members! Their meal was well-deserved and served as a great way to conclude the expedition, sharing the memories and friendships gained that are sure to be carried on after everyone said their ‘goodbyes.’
While it was a long summit day, the team made strong work on their ascent, and ultimately all stood on the summit before returning down safely. Below is the Madison Mountaineering Aconcagua Summiteers List from Monday, January 16:
|1||Mr. Javier “Cacho” Beiza||Argentina|
|2||Mr. Thierry Dhers||USA|
|3||Mr. Naveen “Nav” Kotecha||USA|
|4||Mr. Rein Madissoon||Estonia|
|5||Ms. Rein Madissoon||Estonia|
|6||Mr. Frank McCarthy||Ireland|
|7||Mr. Nicholas Pangallo||Canada|
|8||Mr. Seth Sklare||USA|
|9||Mr. Peter Veloo||USA|
|10||Mr. Bruno Vizzaccaro||Canada|
We are grateful for the experiences shared and new friends made over the course of the last few weeks! Now, we’re looking forward to doing it all over again as we kick off another Aconcagua expedition on January 25th with guides Garrett Madison, Cacho Beiza, and legendary mountaineer, Ed Viesturs!
Stay tuned for more…
