The Aconcongua Normal Route Team 3 Expedition has officially started! Everyone has safely arrived in Mendoza and is ready to go. We kicked off our expedition with a gear check, a briefing of our trip, and a wonderful dinner at La Lucia last night. Today (12/17) we are leaving Mendoza and heading towards the mountains. We will be doing our finally preparations for the trip this evening and staying in Penitentes tonight which is right outside Parque Provinicial Aconcagua. Everyone is doing great and is excited to begin our adventure!
