December is an awful time of year for all rescue orgs
Elna and Petra decided to climb Mount Aconcagua and at the same time wanting to climb for a purpose, both of us are very much in love with Border Collies, it was easy to decide which charity to choose for our purpose to climb…Border Collie Rescue was the obvious choice.
We would like to get donations for each milestone reached, we have divided it into 5 milestones of which people can choose how much money for each milestone they would like to donate. It can be for each milestone or any one milestone.
The milestones are as follows:
Milestone 1: Reach Plaza Argentina base camp at elevation 4,200 m
Milestone 2: Camp 1 at elevation 4,970 m
Milestone 3: Camp 2 at elevation 5,480 m
Milestone 4: High Camp Piedras Blancas at elevation 6,092 m
Milestone 5: Summit at 6,962 m
How to follow us will be via the website of Mountain Trip where there will be trip reports one can subscribe to https://mountaintrip.com/trip-reports/ (you then select on dropdown 2017 Aconcagua Dec 17), which will send updates or there will be a link we will provide later as it becomes active once the expedition starts. We depart from Johannesburg on 14 December 2017 and return on 9 January 2018.
