News from Aconcagua continues to be good. Weather for the approach has been warm and dry. Jonathan’s team should arrive at Plaza Argentina today, which is base camp on the Polish Glacier side and Robert’s team is making their carry to C1 on the Horcones Valley side. Kind of interesting to have groups approaching the mountain from the two sides at the same time. Everyone seems to be strong and healthy and that’s about as much as we could hope for right now. Jonathan’s crew will take a day off tomorrow at base camp and Robert’s crew will likely move up to C1.
The teams seem to be in a pretty favorable weather pattern right now. Forecasts don’t call for any precipitation currently through the end of the month. We’ll take it.
