Aconcagua, the highest mountain in the western hemisphere.
Both our Aconcagua and Ecuador High Altitude expeditions are underway. Aconcagua team members, with AAI guides Dylan Taylor and Joey Elton, are poised at High Camp (19,300 feet) and will make their summit bid on Friday. Ecuador team members and AAI guide Richard Riquelme are currently at the Cayambe Refugio and will be making their attempt on Cayambe tomorrow. Follow their progress up these famous peaks by visiting www.aai.cc/currentnews.
If you are interested in either of these expeditions, please get in touch with Andy Bourne, our Foreign Programs Coordinator at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at 360-671-1505.
