Hello everybody,

After our successful climb on Aconcagua the team is back in civilization and are very happy to be back in one piece.

Hike out today was beautiful through the Horcones Valley. Weather was perfect for the long like out. Everyone enjoyed the long awaited shower at Hotel Ayelen, had a wonderful dinner with some wine.

Tomorrow the team is heading back to Mendoza for final night and farewell dinner. Thanks again for supporting and following us.
