Today Las Pumas summited Mt. Bonete! We reached a new high point for the trip at 16,732 ft. The weather was excellent and the views fantastic! The entire team continues to acclimatize well.
Tomorrow we have a carry and acclimatization hike to Canada, which will be our first high camp.
Las Pumas took a rest day in Plaza de Mulas. We enjoyed phenomenal hot showers, the bean bags in the new relaxation dome, reading time, and lots of good food.
I think it’s safe to say that we all feel refreshed and ready for our hike to Bonete tomorrow.
The first photo below is a view of the alpenglow over the slopes of Aconcagua and the second photo is a view of the sunset over the peak we plan to climb tomorrow (it’s the triangle in the middle in the very back).
