Argentina: Non fishing news Climbing Edition.

Join us in thinking happy, fair weather, and oxygen rich thoughts for friend of FlyfishMagazine, Bryan Mannlein. Bryan and a team of fellow climbers are in Argentina making ready to climb all 22,841 feet of Mount Aconcagua.

Bryan has already conquered the Colorado 14'ers so he is more than capable.  Our attempts to sponsor Bryan's trip were somewhat hampered by the lack of fly fishing atop Aconcagua. However, we did manage to purchase the naming rights to his left boot by treating him to a hearty meal of Texas BBQ brisket.

The team currently plans a summit attempt in early January.  Follow Bryan on Instagram @bryanmannlein
