Hello, this is Garrett calling in for the Aconcagua team. We are all back down in Plaza de Mulas base camp – 14,000 ft. on the normal route of Aconcagua. We had a great time on our expedition.
Yesterday our team went for the summit and we don’t want to reveal what happened on our summit attempt because we want to save it for TV show which is forecoming. But we’re all back down safe and the weather’s great. It’s been a fantastic team, great expedition. Just a wonderful experence here on Aconcagua, the highest mountain in the Western and Southern Hemispheres. Wonderful time in Argentina.
And our plan tomorrow is to trek out and head back to Mendoza. We’ll probaby get in late to Mendoza after an 18 mile trek out and 3 hour drive back to Mendoza. All’s well here on Aconcagua. We’ll check-in soon!
By the way, it’s not too early to start making your plans to join us on other expeditions in the 2020 season! Contact our office for details.
