Aconcagua Team Ochos Locos Arrive at Basecamp!

Hello everyone!

This is the Ochos Locos checking in from Plaza de Argentina at 13,700’!

Today we woke up at around 5:30am so we could leave camp at 7. It was pretty cold before the sun hit us so we decided to ride miles across the river rather than get our feet wet and cold before our hike. We had a beautiful hike with blue skies and no wind.

We arrived at base camp just before 4pm. The amazing AMG staff had snacks and drinks waiting for us. The dining tents were a welcome reprieve from dining in the wind the last couple nights.

Everyone is happy and healthy. Here are a few photos from our trek.

We send our love!!
