Hello Freinds and Family,
Yeaterday the team spent the day getting well deserved rest at Plaza Argentina. There is unbelievable service here for how remote and rugged the location is.
Aconcagua has a rich mountain culture that is something to admire. I have shared a photo below of the staff at P.A. eating their dinner after their days work. It describes the familial nature very well. Always smiling and “other” focused. We are in gratitude for them!
Today, our team carried loads to Campo Uno at 16,300’, making the round trip from base camp in just under eight hours. A busy day and our first taste of the upper mountain. Dinner was traditional asado and was amazing.
Tomorrow we will rest again before committing to the upper mountain.
Stay tuned for more.
Juan and the team called in with a report from Camp 2. They are feeling strong! The satellite phone connection did not allow for a full transcription of the report. Stay tuned.
All is well for the Summit Seduction Squad as they gear up for the move to Camp 2!
It was an extremely professionally arranged expedition. I could not find fault with any aspect of our trip. We summited; made good friends; came back safely. Excellent guides who could not have worked harder. Correct balance number of clients. Good quality hired equipment.
