We received great news from IMG Senior Guide, Nickel Wood from Mendoza this morning. The entire team has passed their COVID Test and has the climbing permit. They are now on the way to Uspallata where they will do a little more of the duffle shuffle and gear organization for the Mule ride up the valley. Tomorrow is a shorter day of trekking and the team should arrive to Confluencia Camp (10,826′) in about 4 hours. They will spend a couple nights at Confluencia before moving up to Plaza De Mulas Base Camp (13,976′).
It is great to have the team on the move towards Aconcagua!
