Progress from Aconcagua

combat-wounded-veteran-challenge-aconcagua-day4-4The CWVC Challenge Warriors are a third of the way up the Aconcagua Summit!

Billy Costello reported in and shared the schedule for the remainder of the week.
“Last night the team stayed at Plaza de Mulas. Today, we climb up to Camp Canada and back down to Plaza de Mulas for the night. Thursday Team CWVC takes a rest day at Plaza de Mulas and then commences the climb once again on Friday.”

The team excitedly relayed this story as well…
The other night, CWVC Team 1 headed out at 2am, with Team 2 following at 4am. While traveling, they were fortunate enough to view several stunning sights – The Southern Star, as well as the Milky Way…oh, and the Space Station came screaming by in the night sky, lit up like a Christmas tree!

The views of the Andes Mountains are breathtaking and the team is doing quite well traversing the summit to this point.

Here are a few pics from the trek from the past day or so. In one of the photos you can see the Summit in the background covered by a cloud.

More to come as our combat wounded and injured veteran team continues its ascent on the Aconcagua Summit. Keep checking the CWVC website for progress updates over the course of the next two weeks. The team returns March 1 to CWVC HQ.

    As we sit at home thinking of cards and candy we should all remember that there are men and women who have already given us these gifts! Tomorrow I will be cheering my Valentines who will make that summit!!
