Dobek summits

Friday 13th February 2009

Reports just received (00:14 South African time) are that Dobek Pater summited Aconcagua a few days ago. No confirmation as yet as to the route taken.

Dobek’s climbing partner, Andrew Raubenheimer, appears to have reached 6960m before turning back with AMS (Acute Mountain Sickness).

Congratulations to the team.

Both are safe and now heading back to Mendoza from BC .
