Aconcagua Expedition: Ready for Camp 1 Carry

Elevation: 13,780'

Yesterday we had a lovely day resting at Plaza Argentina and catching up on some sleep, sorting gear and generally preparing to go higher on the mountain.  Though “resting,” we were doing the work of building a solid base of acclimatization for later in the expedition.  Without giving our bodies a chance to recover, we would seriously hinder our shot at the upper mountain. 

Today, well rested, we will carry a load up to Camp 1 at over 16,000 feet to prepare for our tenure higher up.  Hasta la vista everyone.
