Elevation: 13,800'

After a good trip up the Relinchos Valley yesterday, the team is enjoying a well-earned rest day here at Plaza Argentina. Our night of good rest rolled into a breakfast of eggs, fried ham, peppers and onions with coffee and hot chocolate, and was thoroughly enjoyed by everyone.

After giving the team time to digest, we all went over to the medical office and got the obligatory physical check-up. Everyone passed with flying colors, and we’re now poised and ready for our carry up to Camp One tomorrow, situated at 16,200’.

While we’re living at about 14,000 feet, everyone is feeling tip top and acclimating perfectly. We have beautiful weather and look forward to staging for the move higher on this beautiful mountain.

Keep sending the positive energy!

GB- for you, tomorrow I’m snow shoeing cypress with a heavy pack so I can pretend I know what it’s like.  Strength, stamina, power, endurance.
