We heard from team leader, Eben Reckord, yesterday afternoon. The group arrived safe and sound and without issue at Plaza Mulas. That’s on the Horcones Valley side of the mountain. We like to traverse the mountain whenever feasible and it was just that for this crew. Tomorrow is the long walk out to the trail head. However, it’ll be without heavy packs and boots as the mules are meeting the group in Plaza Mulas and will relieve them of that burden. They’re close to the finish line now.
