  Aconcagua February 2015 Arrives for Climb

4 February 2015 -

Hi! This is Max Kausch writing the first dispatch for the SummitClimb February 2015 Aconcagua Expedition. Today is a cloudy Wednesday and most of our team is already in Mendoza! We're waiting for our last member who is arriving in 1 hour!

After 2 successful trips in a row (one being the first in 2015 and another with almost 10 expedition members on the summit), we start our third expedition to Aconcagua.

This time we have a very mixed team from all over the world! 4 members from Brazil, 1 from Australia, 1 from Israel, 1 from US and 1 from France.

At this time we have the presence of Ms. Jan Smith from Australia. She's attempting to summit Aconcagua as her 6th summit out of the 7 highest in each continent.  Jan is aiming to summit Aconcagua and then move to her next summit on the list, Mt McKinley.  Ms. Smith is 70 years old and we are very proud to have her in our team!  She's a 3 time veteran on SummitClimb expeditions!

We also have Mr. Ziller and Mr. Tarso from Brazil who are shooting a documentary for the Brazilian TV.  We hope to contribute and do our best so they can shoot their documentary smoothly.
 

This is our February team:

Maximo Kausch - Leader - Argentina/Brazil/UK Jorge Spur - Guide - Argentina Eduardo Tonetti - Guide - Brazil/Argentina Lilian Meissner - Brazil Ivy Miranda - Brazil Gustavo Ziller - Brazil (TV crew) Gabriel Tarso - Brazil (TV crew) Jan Smith - Australia Roi Negri - Israel Gary Erwin - United States CÚdric Chamaillard - France
 

Thanks for following our news,
Max Kausch
