Our Aconcagua team made a carry of gear up to Camp 1 and returned to base camp today.  Expedition leader, Garrett Madison, provides this dispatch:

Hello, this is Garrett calling in for the Aconcagua expedition.  We had a great day doing a carry up to Camp 1 on Aconcagua today.  It was sunny in the morning, clear, cold and we got up to Camp 1 – it was a little windy – cached our gear, our food, equipment, and personal items that we are going to retrieve when we move up to Camp 1 in a couple of days time.

Beautiful evening here in base camp, the stars are out, we had a wonderful dinner.  We’re just relaxing, getting ready for bedtime and looking forward to a rest day tomorrow.

All’s well here on Aconcagua.  Check-in soon.
