Ascent Trip Report

We approached from the Vacas Vally and descended via the normal route. Organised expedition with Adventure Peaks. The walks in and out were very hot and dry, An extra day spent at base camp to allow a few members of the team to recover from illnesses. All strong and healthy for summit bid on the 22nd with 100% of the team successfully reaching the top. Beers and steak back in Mendoza!
