Elevation: 16,200'

We said our bittersweet goodbyes to the good life at Plaza Argentina this morning as we headed up on the mountain to begin our climb. No more steak or lasagna dinners but it sure feels good to be finally doing this! The team climbed extremely well and made even better time up to Camp 1 than we did on our carry a couple of days ago. Everybody is a bit tired but in good spirits… Looking forward to a good night’s sleep and another work day tomorrow as we try and push a load of supplies further up the mountain.

Also wanted to make a shout out to Garrett’s team, who made the summit today! Nice work guys…

Buenas noches de campo 1,
