Viento Blanco had a farewell dinner in Mendoza 

Hello everybody,

This morning we drove back to Mendoza from Penitentes. We are back in Mendoza now. We had our farewell dinner and said all the best to each other for ongoing journeys and adventures. 

Thanks to all the followers who supported us on this journey and wished us the best. 

Thanks to all the climbers for joining Alpine Ascents on our Aconcagua expeditions and best wishes for all in future climbing. Be safe on the mountain, safety first !!!

Namaste,

Jangbu, Dylan & Mariano 

Viento Blanco back in civilization 

Hey everybody!

The team is back in Penitentes after our 18-mile hike down the Horcones Valley today. Everyone is doing well with hot showers and a great meal at the Hotel Ayelen. Folks are excited to share their stories from Aconcagua with family and friends. 

We will be heading back to Mendoza tomorrow and do our farewell dinner. Thank you all for following us along the way. We will have our last cybercast tomorrow. 

Cheers,

Jangbu, Dylan & Mariano

Team Back at High Camp

Once again, AAI and the incredible guides provided an expedition that exceeded all hopes and expectations. Every detail is so dialed in there is a reason I keep coming back time and time again to AAI and will continue to do so.
