In December 2018 I packed up my duffle and headed on my way over to Mendoza, Argentina where I would embark on my journey to climb Aconcagua with Andes Specialists and lead guide Maximo Kausch. I was very lucky to have Max lead our expedition, he has a great deal of experience and knowledge, holding the world record for most 6000m peaks summited. You can watch Max's Redbull series here. It was a gruelling 17 days of high altitude trekking, and unfortunately,Aconcagua's notorious weather and altitude got the best of us. At 6000m when approaching high camp (camp 3), I was being badly affected by the altitude and made the decision to turn back after needing a dose of Dextroamphetamine to get me down safely. As we came down, it because to blizzard, and the rest of my team had to spend the night in terrible weather conditions with a large dumping of snow and 80-100km/h winds at over 6000m altitude. They had to abandon the expedition the next morning as the wind was tearing apart tents and it was far too dangerous to continue. The only person who was able to summit was a Norwegian man by the name of Jon, who decided to stay on the mountain and wait for the next weather window, which ended up being almost two weeks after we had left Argentina.
