The Seven Guanacos are happy and tired back at High Camp after their succesful summit

Hi, this is Matthew Emht calling in for Aconcagua Team 3, The Seven Guanacos. The entire Team has summited today, Monday the 30th and we are safely back at our High Camp.

Everybody’s tired but in good spirits. We’re going to have a good night’s sleep tonight and we’ll descend all the way down to Base Camp tomorrow, with heavy packs but on a pretty easy trail.

So, that’s the news. Everybody’s (once again) summited, happy, tired, and probably a little hungry and thirsty. So it’s a gourmet ramen meal tonight, and down to Base Camp for New Years tomorrow night.

Thanks a lot for listening.
