IMG leader Greg Vernovage reports that the team moved yesterday up to the Tambo Condoriri Camp at about 14,100 feet. Then, today, they continued their gradual approach, climbing up to the Condoriri Base Camp at 15,200 feet. Greg says that everyone is doing well with their acclimatization program. The rain they had earlier in the week has ended and the weather is now cold and clear, with temperatures tonight at BC expected to be well down into the single digits (Fahrenheit). The plan for tomorrow is to train out on the nearby glacier with an emphasis on cramponing and ropework, in preparation for the Pequeno Alpamayo climb.
