Leader: Iain Bisset
Summit Success for the last team of the season. Last night Iain sent a message to say that Manesh and David along with himself reached the highest point in South America at 14:30hrs local time. Today the team will descend to Plaza de Mulas in the Horcones valley and then trek back to the road head on Tuesday, ready for a well earned rest at Penitentes. It’s likely the team will return to Mendoza on Wednesday.
Iain has been in touch to say that the team is doing well. They are making the move to Camp Colera today where they will prepare for tomorrow’s summit attempt. Here’s wishing them the best of luck!
The team are having a rest day at Camp 1 today and tomorrow they hope to do a load carry to Camp 3 Guannacos.
The team have completed their first carry to Camp 1 and today the team will move up to Camp 1 at 4900m.
The team have arrived at Plaza Argentinas base camp today. Iain says the team are strong arriving their in only 5 hours from Casa de Piedra. Iain has sent through some picutres of their journey along the Vacas valley.
