I stayed at senior reyes compound and met a great group of people. Out of the 10 of us only 3 summited. My 2 words of wisdom are as follows---be in good physical condition, also acclimatization is so very important (I gave myself 41/2 days at various heights). There were many people at base camp with ams and as a result they could not summit. Piedra Grande hut is a very windy, cold place. Make sure to bring your Gore-Tex!! This is a beautiful mountain and should be treated with due respect. I want to say hi to the guys from California, Arizona and the dental students from the northeast. Thanks guys!
