Luke, Jay, Martin and team started walking today. Pampas Lenas by this evening. The 3 day approach to base is pretty much perfect from an acclimatization standpoint. Mules carry all the gear so each member has basically a day pack to carry at this stage of the trip. Packs get heavier above base camp. Terrain is not super steep and the elevation gain is gradual. Just what’s needed to work out the kinks and starting making more red blood cells.
