Aconcagua Dispatch: Madness Team Prepares For Summit!


Guides Andrew Wexler called in this weekend with an update from Aconcagua. Their team – comprised of clients Dave Creeden, Andrea DeVoe, David Krause, Hanse Ringstroem, and Terry Schuck – has been climbing Aconcagua via the Polish route, and is preparing for the big summit push!

They arrived at high camp yesterday, and have been enjoying a rest day lounging in the sunshine at 19,300 feet. Andrew reports that everyone is doing very well, and that the group is “stoked for the summit!” The forecast is for sunshine, so hopefully they’ll have sunshine on their big day.

Everyone in the group says hello to family and friends, and David Krause says “word up” to the governor. Hopefully the next time we hear from them will be when they’re calling from the summit!
