Hi all, Cat here!
Today has been one of many firsts, waking up to a beautiful camp with stunning scenery, spotting Chilean guanacos, digging out our first latrines, reaching 5100m and being exposed to the real effects of altitude.
Some of the team suffered more than others, and the rest of us are in complete awe of their determination, grit and resilience in making it to the summit.
Special shout out to all our guides, who prepared us for this incredible adventure, especially Colin and Glynn. Our local guides are impressed with our performance, skills and team work. We are never last, we always take small steps and above all - we’re working together.

The FWC team are climbing Ojos del Salado to raise money for the Royal British Legion who work tirelessly to support the Armed Forces community - serving personnel, veterans and their families. If you would like to support them with a donation that would be fantastic - thank you!
