Gellerts Embark on Antarctica Expedition

Friday, November 19th, 2010

Expedition Date: November 26-December 11, 2010

With multiple Seven Summit expeditions under their belts, our brother and sister team, John and Kate Gellert, now head far south for the trip of a lifetime as they make their attempt the summit of Antarctica’s Mt. Vinson. The unspeakable grandness and sublime space of Antarctica is unmatched and will offer these explorers a brief glimpse at the pure, empty soul of our planet.

With Wally Berg as their guide, John and Kate will be faced with extreme isolation, bone-chilling cold, and punishing winds as they journey towards their goal—the summit of Mt. Vinson. This is the big one, and promises to challenge the limits of each climber’s endurance and ability.

Follow the drama of this adventure through daily dispatches, coming soon.

Join Berg Adventures International for a Magnificent Journey to the Lofty Summit of Aconcagua

Tuesday, November 9th, 2010

From Wally Berg’s dispatch via satellite during our January 2010 trip:

“It is 3:00am and we’re getting ready to begin our climb. The entire Berg Adventures climbing team is setting off to attempt to reach the summit of Aconcagua.”

At 22,841 feet above sea level, Aconcagua is the highest peak in the world, outside of Asia.

“It is now 2:00pm and I’m calling from the summit of Aconcagua! I’m standing here on the summit with Alain, Isabelle, Hugo, Alex, David, Nelson and Osvaldo. We are very emotional and very happy to be here together.”

Join our team this January as we attempt to climb one of the “Seven Summits”. Aconcagua is not only very high but also massive and its profile dominates everything in the region. While enjoying the rich culture of Argentina, our climbers will prepare for one of the most beautiful and rewarding expedition climbs in the world.
