In less than a week’s time, Matt Hopkins will be parking his tractor-trailer for a month in preparation for his climb Mount Aconcagua, one of the seven tallest summits in the world.

Hopkins, a cattle hauler from Dillon, Mont., along with another climber from his hometown, will leave on Monday, Jan. 27, from Bozeman, Mont. The pair will then meet up with two other climbers on their team, one from Italy and one from Greece, once they arrive in South America. He said all four are experienced climbers.
