When Trevor was on his way to Base Camp, he said one of the local people told him that only about 30% of the climbers who travel to Argentina to climb Aconcagua actually reach the summit. Today, 8 of the Dirty Dozen did just that – WAY better than average, thanks to a great guiding company. A big shout out to Berg Adventures International for keeping Trevor and the team safe!
The group awoke at 2:30 AM local time to assess the situation and decided today was, indeed, summit day. I’ll leave it to Berg’s dispatches to describe the play-by-play. The first group (Trevor’s group) reached the summit just under 10 hours after leaving High Camp, with the other group close behind. The entire team was back at High Camp 15 hours later and one full day ahead of schedule – what an unbelievable feat for these folks!
Congratulations Trevor & team. And a BIG thank you to all of the guides & support folks who got them up safely. Can’t WAIT for Trevor to get home with all of his pictures & stories. Stay tuned…there’s gonna be a BIG party!!
Oh, and please share this with all of your friends & support Trevor’s efforts to raise $250,000 to help end family violence!
