Vacas Valley Team 7 at Los Penitentes

Hello everyone,

The Vacas Valley Team #7 is at Los Penitentes tonight. This morning we load up our bus with all food, equipment and personal gears, and drove up to Los Penitentes.

On the way here we stopped to get our climbing permit this morning and continued our journey to Uspallata for lunch. We all enjoyed the delicious food here at Ayelen with some Malbec. Everyone is excited to begin our 3 days (30 mile) trek to base camp tomorrow. We will keep posted.

Thanks for following and will try to post as much photos as we can.
