IMG Senior Guide, Greg Vernovage, called in from Plaza Argentina today. Lots of new snow on the upper mountain and the weather’s good. Forecast looks reasonable, too. All members are in camp and a hot drink is on the stoves. Tomorrow’s a rest day and a check in with the Park officials. Then, the work begins. Aconcagua is one of the more underrated peaks in the world. Not technical but quite physical. Time for the guys to put on their game faces, but not until day after tomorrow. Tomorrow is all about relaxing, eating and drinking.
