The team all reached Aconcagua base camp, or Plaza Argentina, on the 23rd. A couple of headaches, to be expected, but nothing serious. A quart of water and some extra attention to breathing always helps. Checking in with the Argentina Park officials at base camp, resting, eating and drinking are the order of the day. The team’s in good shape as they’ve now completed their approach. Now, 3 camps need to be established, food and fuel put into place. One step at a time.
