Aconcagua summit¡CUMBRE! Another successful Rapid Ascent Aconcagua (22,841′ / 6962m) summit! The team was back in C3 (19,700′ /  6000m) early this morning and they are currently making their way back to base camp (13,800′ / 4206m).

Aconcagua is famous for many reasons. It is the tallest peak in the Southern and Western Hemisphere, and also the highest peak outside the Himalaya. Its high altitude makes it the ideal training ground for 8,000 meter peaks like Cho Oyu and Everest.

The team will fly back to Los Penitentes (8,540′ / 2600m) this evening and then it is a 3 hour drive from Penitentes to Mendoza. They should be at the Diplomatic Hotel around midnight (7pm PST), long day for the team! Cheers to a successful summit, in good weather, and with great company. #AdventureDoneRight
