Aconcagua Trip Dispatch

We’re happy to report that we’ve heard great things from our team on Aconcagua! Guide Alejo Lazzati and clients Shawn Dawson and John O’Beirne called from Plaza de Mulas to say that they’re having a wonderful experience on South America’s highest peak. After some questions about inclement weather, they’re hoping that the clear skies hold for their push to Camp Canada (also known as Camp 1).

It’s an especially exciting trip for Shawn Dawson, who is climbing the Seven Summits to raise money and awareness for charity. Being Canadian, he’s hoping to start the summit push on Boxing Day! Check out his organization, Dream Mountains ( for more information on his quest.
