Vacas Valley Team 7 is now Team Vertical Chorizo

Hello everyone,

Team Vacas #7 is officially “Vertical Chorizo” now. Today was one of the big day for us but the team did it in good style. We are in Plaza Argentina which is going to be our base camp at 13,800ft for the next four days. Weather was super good for the trek up to base camp today.

Once at base camp, we were welcomed with plenty of snacks, fresh fruits and juices. Then we set up our tents and enjoyed the great barbaque dinner.

Tomorrow, we are going on a short stroll in the morning and taking afternoon off to prepare personal stuffs and group loads to be carried to camp one the following day.

Thanks for following and stay tuned for updates,
