The Madison Mountaineering Aconcagua expedition is off to a great start in Argentina! Despite some snow on the mountain, the team is looking good, feeling strong and has made it up to Camp 1. The food and views have been great, and spirits are high! In the next few days, the team plans to rest and look for a weather window so they can continue higher up the mountain. Expedition leader, Cacho Beiza, checks in with this brief dispatch from Aconcagua:
We will be sleeping in C1 (5060m/16,600ft) today. We are arriving in a couple of hours and everybody is feeling good!
