The first Mountain Madness team in Colombia since our recon trip last year have nearly completed their adventure, and with great success! The team was excited and lucky enough to have excellent sunny weather on the majority of the the trip.
A map of the team’s success!
All in all, the group climbed three peaks of 5000+ meters and 2 acclimation peaks. Last week, the group reached the summit of Concavo Peak (5200 meters) and Toti (5016 meters). Conditions were a little rough with high wind speed this morning, but everyone made it to the summit of Ritacuba Blanco (5410 meters), the highest peak in the Cocuy mountain range. The spirits among the team were high the entire trip, and who could blame them with such spectacular landscapes surrounding them!
