This is Max Kausch writing a dispatch for the SummitClimb Aconcagua December
expedition 2013. Today is Sunday January 5th.
I´m glad to tell you that 8 of 11 made it to the summit! We had a perfect day
with no wind! Our acclimatization plan worked very well and we were able to
walk to the bottom of the canaleta (the toughest part of the climb) in only 4
hours! Finally at lunch time on the 4th we reached the summit!
The view was amazing! We could see at least another 50 major mountains up to
150 miles away!
We´re now packing the loads for tomorrow to start the long walk to Horcones
where there is a transport waiting for us.
Thanks for following our expeditions. Wait for more news; we have another
Aconcagua Expedition starting on January 9th.
