Climbing to Camp 1!

Aconcagua Camp 1

Hiking up to Camp 1

After a few days resting in base camp, organizing gear, and carrying loads, we have now moved up to Camp 1.  We have a nice view looking down into the valley below, now we really have begun the climb!  This is probably one of the toughest parts of the mountain as there was a lot of loose rock scrambling on the way up today, higher on the mountain we usually encounter snow & ice, for which we will use our crampons.  Tomorrow we plan to carry up to Camp 2.  We have been fortunate with good weather, and hope it continues!
