Aconcagua. On February 13, 1973, we reached the summit of Cerro Aconcagua via the standard route. The team was unusual in that almost half its members were women: Susan Condon, Barbara Lilley, Norma Viault, and Gail Wilts. The male portion of the team was comprised of Bill Feldman, Brian Gregory, Dennis Hennek, John Osterhut, and me. The team was accompanied by the official Argentine guide, Rafael Juárez.
