Tapp called in this afternoon from their second trekking camp en route to Base Camp. The team is doing great and is set to enjoy some chicken asado tonight. Their camp is set up just alongside a braided river that they’ll cross in the morning. It’s a little breezy at this camp but the views are amazing.
Their plan is to get started pretty early tomorrow so they can get to Plaza Argentina (Base Camp) early and enjoy the afternoon relaxing. The following day (Saturday) will be a rest day. They may go for a short hike but will generally be resting for the days ahead.
No word yet from the teams on their walk out today but they’re likely at the trailhead or back in Penitentes having a beer, sorting gear and waiting for their ride to Mendoza.
That’s all from Aconcagua for now.
