Both teams have checked in and things are off to a smooth start this year in Argentina.
Andy and his team have pulled into Casa de Piedra after their second day on the trail. Basecamp is just around the corner and they’ll get an early start out of the gate tomorrow morning. The brave souls in the group will make the chilly river crossing in the morning on foot while others may choose to jump on the mules for a free ride. Both options are fun and will no doubt get the group laughing. I’ll keep you posted on when they arrive at the Plaza Argentina Basecamp.
Jonathan Schrock and crew have secured their Aconcagua climbing permits and all the food packing and gear prep has been done in Mendoza. Solid work, guys. Sometimes the hardest job is just getting out the door! They are enjoying a meal in Mendoza this evening and I’m sure the team is buzzing with excitement with the thought of getting to Penitentes tomorrow.
