I just finished a successful Aconcagua climb a few days ago and now am on my way from Mendoza, Argentina to Punta Arenas, Chile. I will meet up with fellow Alpine Ascents guide Matt Hegeman and we will do a few days of expedition prep work before meeting our group in Punta Arenas then flying to Antarctica!
