Guide Mike Bradley and three climbers went all the way to the summit of Mt Aconcagua, at 22,834 ft. This makes a record of 5 out of 5 teams summiting this season! 100% success rate so far, so I am sure you will tolerate some marketing here. Back to Mike´s group, they are all going down the hill today, and will be having a proper celebration dinner tomorrow in Mendoza (it´s 40 degrees C here).
They spent New Year´s Eve at 6.000m, at high camp: not many people can have such an experience to tell (on the other hand, It must have been an austere celebration, since I don´t think anybody will risk a hang over at that altitude). I attach a pic of the place, froma previous trip. I will post another dispatch when they get to Mendoza. Regards!
