After a long day of packing yesterday in Mendoza, the team had a late dinner at one of the many side walk restaurants in town. Got up this morning, paid hotel bills and drove up to Penitentes, at the start of the climb. They met Josh McDowell’s team in Penitentes as his group was heading for Mendoza. Josh Tapp and crew had an afternoon of preparing mule loads and getting ready to begin their approach to base camp tomorrow.
