A few more check-ins to report this morning:
First up, Peter Anderson & team called the IMG office on Saturday from Plaza de Argentina to report that all is well. They had a great trek in to Base Camp, fueled by the traditional barbecued steak. Yesterday was the designated rest day, and the plan is to carry to Camp 1 today. We’ll be waiting to hear from them soon.
Mike Hamill checked in with the office this morning from Base Camp, where they arrived yesterday. The plan is to move up to Camp Canada tomorrow. The past 2 afternoons have been rainy, but the sun is peeking out today and looks like its going to stay for awhile. No issues, everyone is well.
And finally, Phil and the Ecuador team hiked a good 3000 vertical feet to Pasochoa yesterday, followed by a visit to Porvenir, a nice little hacienda at the foot of Cotopaxi. Perfect weather this morning, so they’ll head up to the hut on Cotopaxi for acclimatization and training, then back down to Porvenir tonight. So far so good.
