Aconcagua Team Vertical Chorizo Well Rested at Base Camp

Hello everybody,

Today was a nice and relaxing day for the team Vertical Chorizo.Everyone seems to be rested and recovered from yesterday big day.

The weather was perfect for our rest day until late afternoon then clouds rolled in and we got little snow showers. Euchre, a card game has been a time pass game in the team. We will see if the game goes on even on the upper mountain in tent.

We are moving to camp 1 (16300ft) tomorrow. Everyone is excited to move higher, will see how it goes tomorrow and let all know about the day.
