9 for 9 – Climbing to the Top of the Bottom of The World
In 2015 Andrea Hagarty and Johnny Waite of Haliburton climbed Mt Aconcagua in Argentina , the highest peak in the Southern Hemisphere. They joined friends from the US and Ireland for an expedition up one of the world’s tallest mountains, during what turned out to be one of the most treacherous seasons in the mountain’s history. They will share their experience, including personal highs and lows, their preparation and the extraordinary challenges they faced. They will also tell a bit of their own stories and what led them to the other side of the world to take on this awesome adventure.
