Team 8, Mucho Mucho Hadeem spent the day doing a carry to Camp 1 then returned for one last night at Plaza Argentina Base Camp

Friends, family and loved ones, Stuart here, calling from Plaza Argentina Base Camp.

Just to inform you we had a successful carry today up to our Camp 1, a secluded camp (up about 15,200 feet). Everybody’s a little bit tired but is doing well. We got all our loads up there for the upper mountain, came back down and we’re enjoying our last night here at Plaza Argentina Base Camp. We’re going to move up to our Camp 1 tomorrow.

All is well here, we’ll keep you informed of progress, but nice day today, it was pretty conducive for the carry, had some clouds and some precipitation, but it made for an easier day rather than having the heat beat down on us.

Thanks for tuning in and we will keep you informed of our progress, our next call should be from our Camp 1. Thanks, bye.

At Alpine Ascents, we hear this question weekly. While the best answer to this question requires a comprehensive understanding of you and your objective, there are simpler ways to get a […]
