Aconcagua: Justman & Team Camped at Pampa de Las Lenas

Hello folks! It’s JJ and the Aconcagua Team reporting live from Pampa de Las Lenas at 9,000 feet. It’s phenomenal to finally hit the trail with the team. And what a team it is! We have brothers and sisters, old climbing buddies and now new friends.

We had a hot and blistery day trekking in the heat. Sunscreen and lip balm was in full effect. However now it is cloudy and we received a few drops of rain, which we welcomed with open arms. The guides are busy chopping fresh vegetables that we are going to grill along with a big slab of beef.

It’s one of my favorite things…hanging out with the cowboys and the team. The cowboys like it when you ask questions and it’s interesting to learn about their lifestyle. They work hard for it and it’s nice to enjoy a great evening of food and their favorite drink…orange Tang.

Did you guys eat steak at your first camp?  I’m here in London this week and would kill for that amazing steak. :-)

Steve and team,

Glad to hear the team is now complete. Hope you get just enough rain and the weather gods continue to smile.

Hike well.

In the reverence to David Crosby, never forget “when you see the Southern Cross for the fist time”. Mine was in 1991 when Al died. Be strong, have fun.
