R. Cochrane – Aconcagua 2012

I did not anticipate this to be an exciting climb. Just an opportunity to do a high altitude climb since I couldn’t make it to Alaska this past Spring. Not only did the mountain kick our ass with the weather and keep us on our toes but I learned a ton about the local culture thanks to the guides and the climb exceeded my expectations in ever respect thanks to the guide and clients on the trip. Thanks for an amazing time!

Joe Butler was the most approachable and friendly guide I have ever worked with. Great guy and always looking out for the whole team. Great knowledge of the mountain, culture and what to expect from the mountain. Never lost sight of any objective.

Augustine was the perfect assistant. A VERY strong climber, he could be counted on for any duties. He stuck with the clients and was instrumental in the overall effectiveness of the team and its coordination.
