Aconcagua 2018 – Camp Nido (5500m)

Yesterday was awesome.  It didn’t start so well.  Kenny woke me up early and was battling.  He’d had no sleep, was anxious and wanted to leave immediately to go home. What a state of mind to be in when you are so remote and feel so helpless.  I’ve experienced many moments on big hills when […]

Aconcagua 2018 – Plaza de Mulas (4250m)

Sorry about the lack of comms.  There’s been so much snowfall that there hasn’t been any cell connection and Sean hasn’t been able to charge his phone on the solar charger.  I heard from Sean this evening – they’re all fine and doing well at Base Camp (Plaza de Mulas).   The plan is to […]

Aconcagua 2018 – Mendoza to Penitentes

At last our bags have arrived. After being delayed before leaving South Africa, it appears the entire baggage handling system of Latam airlines packed up and went South. Four bags all at once. In this remarkably connected world no-one at the airline would pick up a phone and check that the lost bags had physically […]

Message from Sean – ‘We’ve all arrived at the High Camp (Barafu Hut) after a 4 hour trek from Karanga camp where we spent last night.  Everyone is in good shape for the 11pm departure for the summit.  Lots of excitement.  It’s a little windy and overcast’.

Message from Sean received this morning ‘Everyone has settled in after 10 hours on our feet yesterday.  The rule is ‘pole pole’ to acclimatise well.  Pole means to go slow in Swahili.  And it’s paying off.  There’s no data so no pics.  Everyone looking good and strong’.

Kilimanjaro – day 3 – Baranco camp (3950m)

From Sean ‘Our team is made up of 4 blue guys and 8 pink gals.  Linda has a fresh coat of eyeliner on and is not concerned if it rains because it’s waterproof.  Gavin has been voted the team Dad of the month because he never argues with his twin boys and just pays the […]
