  Summit Climb Launches 2nd Aconcagua Attempt

10 January 2014 -

Hi, This is Max Kausch writing a dispatch for the SummitClimb January 2014 Aconcagua Expedition

We´re back from a successful expedition in December where we had 8 of 11 people on the summit of Aconcagua.

Our January team is very diverse. We have 3 members for the trekking to BC and another 6 for the summit. We´re planning the summit push for around January 23rd so we should be back to Mendoza for the 25th. We expect low winds for the last week of the month and at least 1 or 2 storms for the time we are up there.

The last 2 members of our expedition arrived yesterday. Ashok and Komal arrived from India about 1 week ago and spent a few days in Calafate at Patagonia.

Thank you for following the teams from SummitClimb.com

Our January team is:

Maximo Kausch - Leader - UK/Argentina/Brazil
Eduardo Tonetti - Guide - Brazil
Jorge Spur - Guide - Argentina
Cameron Michael Fairman - US
Ashok Tripathi - India
Komal Sodhi - India
Manoel Prado - Brazil
Anderson Dias - Brazil
Francisco Filho - Brazil
Ivna Gadelha - Brazil
Josemaria Vasconcelos - Brazil
Waldyr Borim - Brazil
