Aconcagua Team #2, with Josh Tapp in the lead, checked in today from Mendoza. Great news was that all climbers have arrived and all luggage has arrived. We had a couple of missing bags yesterday but all has been resolved. That’s huge.
Final shopping and final packing are going on now. A quick stop tomorrow at the permit office and the team will be on their way to Penitentes, at the base of the mountain.
