Aconcagua Summit!!!

Lisa called in from the summit of Aconcagua!

The team awoke early in the morning, and departed from high camp around 5:30 in the morning.  They worked their way up the north ridge of the mountain, first climbing directly up it, then along the east side, before cresting the ridge to make their way up the west side of the peak.  Snow fell lightly on the team, but the winds were also light, so they kept climbing.

Congratulations to everyone!!

Here’s Lisa, calling in from 22,841 feet above South America!
