Hey everybody, this is Dave Heinbach with Aconcagua Team 10, also known as Team Tranquilo. Well today we did a carry up to our Camp 1 (at about 15,300 feet, más o menos [more or less in Spanish]).
The team did great, we had fantastic weather today. It’s amazing how fast the weather can change up here. We rolled into Base Camp in basically a snow storm, and now it’s nice and warm and sunny, and all the snow is gone.
We had a very pleasant walk up to Camp 1. Everyone did really well with the altitude, and the pace.
We selected our jury of three people to vote on the best tent set up, got a little bit of a competition going on here. And tomorrow we are going to sever the umbilical that is Plaza Argentina and leave, and head on up and start climbing this mountain. So keep us in your thoughts and prayers. And for Team Tranquilo, this is Dave Heinbach saying “adios”.
