Team Mucho Mucho Hadeen at High Camp ready to rock and roll the summit tomorrow morning

Friends, family, loved ones, Stuart here from Aconcagua Team Mucho Mucho Hadeen, aka El Fuego Negro De Nada, just calling in from our High Camp, Camp Cholera.

Today we moved from the base of the Polish Glacier, we did a traverse across to Camp Cholera and we are now in the launch pad ready to rock and roll this. Pete and I are looking forward to putting the final pieces of the puzzle together and hopefully the weather holds and we are going to try for the summit tomorrow morning.

So wish us luck. Everybody’s doing great, so stay tuned.

And I believe its Caitlin’s birthday today, so Mom and Dad wish you “happy birthday”, they’re just going to finish dinner in the tent at the moment but they wish you a “happy birthday”.

Ciao for now, bye.
