Benegas Brothers Expeditions

Team 1 of Mac Reagan and John are up on the Lhotse face today, touching what will be their highest point ever before our summit push in a week to ten days, they’re climbing strong and have remained healthy, seriously a massive achievement this year! A perfectly timed final rotation as we expect heavy snowfall from tomorrow afternoon through next week. During which time we’ll be hunkered down back at BC with our amazing RV heater! We’re lucky enough to have this great new machine this year, solar power, great shower, projector, movies, and a chill area as well as dining room! Truly our best BC set up ever.

Team 2 Giselle and Alberto will rotate after the storm, also fine for a second summit window, patience and keeping moving is all part of the game here! Meanwhile we have been playing in BC with them, enjoying some fun ladder practice, sunny mornings, birdsong, and views of some impressive (safe) serac fall from the Lo La Pass after recent snow.
