This is the Amigos Calientes checking in from our new home at Plaza de Mulas, 14,200’!
We enjoyed some rest and relaxation today. After a mellow morning of breakfast and reading, we practiced our footwork, cramponing, and ice axe use, during which another snowstorm blew through. We got about four inches of new snow, which gave everyone an opportunity to practice dealing with inclement weather. Everyone is warm and dry and enjoying the additional beauty the snow has provided.
Tomorrow we will do an acclimatization climb to Cerro Bonete, 16,700’. It’s a beautiful peak and will offer some great practice and acclimatization opportunities for our team.
Have a great night, we’ll check in tomorrow after our climb!
