Ojos First Summit of the Season 2017!
December 2016 – January 2017

Dear Vivianne,

Please forgive me for such a late reply. No worries, as I am doing well.

I am happy to report to you that I did manage to make it to the summit of Aconcagua on Jan.17th. The weather forecast said it was going to be windy but turned out to be such pleasant breeze and we all proceeded as scheduled. I was so relieved.

I am very happy to have done consecutive climbs to Ojos del Salad on Jan.3 and then Aconcagua on Jan.17, all thanks to you.

I flew back to Japan and attended an award giving ceremony planned the next day,I was awarded for my Everest record and gave a lecture. All that are successfully done and I feel very happy.

My trip to the South America is now a special and precious memory. Thank you very much.

I am hoping to do SAJAMA 6542m HUASCARAN 6746m Alpamayo 5949 m in the near future and hope to get to see you all then.

Best regards,
Satoshi
