Elías De Andrés Martos and team just began their 10 day adventure trekking through Torres Del Paine National Park. They spent the night before their departure in Puerto Natales, which lies at the entrance to the park as well as on the shores of the Ultima Esperanza fjord. "The views of salt water meeting the towering mountains are astonishing." -- Elias de Andres Martos

Mike King, JM Gorum and team celebrated a well earned summit of Aconcagua yesterday! A cold 20mph wind kept them climbing in their parkas and down pants for most of the day, but good cramponing conditions made the long summit day manageable. They return to base camp today to repack their climbing gear for the mules and begin their trek back to Mendoza. Pool time, and celebrations with copious asados and Malbec await them!

Mike King snapped this photo from the summit on a 2015 expedition. The impressive South Face of Aconcagua drops away to the left, while climbers negotiate the last few hundred feet of the Canaleta, the normal ascent route.

The Chile Ski expedition continues to find good snow and fun skiing. Though the summit of Llaima eluded them, the run back down was a highlight of the trip so far!
