Aconcagua: Justman and Team Settle into Base Camp

Elevation: 13,800'

The time has arrived. We are nestling into Plaza Argentina Base Camp. The weather has been too nice on our trek in. It certainly explains why there is a sun on the flag of Argentina. We wish there was a swimming pool at base.

The entire team is doing very well and it is nice to unload all our gear knowing we don’t have to pack up duffels for the mules. Speaking of mules, we want to thank our cowboys for helping us get to BC. The boys from Grajales are the very best. Second to none and they are part of the RMI family.

It’s time to relax…we will keep you posted from 13800 feet.

Glad to hear that everyone is doing well on the climb.  Looks like the weather is really nice there.  There’s more snow in NYC than in the picture!  We hope Ken’s super-parka comes in handy.  :)
