MCSA CT slideshow Tues 1st Aug

Post by Q20 » Thu Jul 20, 2017 11:15 pm

Hi Folks,

Notice for the slideshow in August

Supertramps in Mexico

Chris Arderne, Michael Kloos and Rick Kotze in Mexico were three of the MCSA Supertramps for the MCSA’s 125th anniversary in 2016. They explored Mexico’s highest volcanoes and rock faces in December 2016 and January 2017.

Looking back on it, it’s classic hubris. With Andean experience above 6000 metres, Chris felt confident the altitude would be no obstacle. Having been in the high 5000s in the Cordillera Blanca in Peru, Michael thought he knew what he was in for. Only Rick, having suffered up Mt Elbrus in Russia, was properly prepared to suffer again. We semi-confidently set Christmas day for our summit attempt, just four days from sea level. And one by one we succumbed. This is the story of three South African amigos fumbling their way up a few volcanoes and some jagged rock faces in the land of chilies, tortillas, piñatas and mustaches.”

Join us, and spread the word.
