Aconcagua: Justman & Team at Camp 1

Elevation: 9,000'

Boom, nailed it! First move day was successful. We are at Camp One, hydrating and replenishing our systems after the big climb from 13,800 to 16,400 feet. The team moved up in style and got to camp with plenty of time to get settled and enjoy the sunshine. The guides are indulging in Argentina’s favorite drink, Yerba Mate, which JJ credits for his hulk-like strength while building rock walls at camp today. Check back tomorrow to see what we’re up to!
