Aconcagua I have now slept at Camp 1!


News in from guide and doctor Mijel, that after a successful load carry on Christmas day to stock Camp 1, the team have taken on the task of sleeping at 4938m. This sometimes means a mild headache but that's a normal part of the acclimatization process!

Today they will decend back to Base Camp to allow their bodies to recover. Then it's going to be a chess game - the crew will leave BC the day after tomorrow and head for the summit (via succsive camps 1 2 and 3), and here the game of deciding exactly when to summit begins - as you can see in the photos the weather is currently outstanding... but Aconcagua isn't famous for wind for nothing! Great rhythm and great crew is the report. Keep up the good work!
