Jaco has arrived in Argentina, ready to climb Mount Aconcagua as part of the Adaptive Grand Slam 7 peaks, 2 poles challenge. The team set off from Heathrow on the 6th Jan and are out there for 3 weeks, hoping to summit around the 20th providing the weather is on their side. Although this is Jaco's first attempt of this mountain, it's the second attempt for some of the team, who attempted Aconcagua last year and although they got very close, they unfortunately didn't get a weather window in order to reach the summit.
Hear from Martin, Jaco and some others in the team in this video from Forces TV:
