Today the Aconcagua team completed the trek in by hiking from Confluencia Camp (3436m/11,273ft) to Plaza de Mulas base camp (4367m/14,327ft). Here’s team member, Peter Horsman, taking full advantage of the base camp Wi-Fi to provide today’s dispatch:
Hello, this is Peter Horsman calling in from the Madison Mountaineering Aconcagua expedition!
We are here at base camp at Plaza de Mulas. It is a beautiful day. We had a great hike up from the first camp and everyone is doing really well. We have a really strong team with a lot of fun and some experience, as well. We just saw, just a stunning sunset on Mount Aconcagua.
So yeah, we’re very excited and looking forward to the days ahead. Looks like tomorrow we’ll have a well-deserved rest day!
