IMG guide Greg Vernovage reports from Illimani that the team has successfully made the journey to Base Camp (about 15,750 ft). The team got some help from mules and porters to get their gear up to the camp and now they are all set to move up to high camp tomorrow. The weather report is decent and the snow conditions on the mountain are reported to be excellent this year. So far so good!
