The Madison Mountaineering Ojos del Salado team took an active rest day today, going for a hike above base camp and preparing for their summit push ahead! Expedition leader, Terray Sylvester checks in with a brief update from base camp:

Hello from Ojos Base Camp (5251m/17,227ft)! Today we went for an acclimatization hike above camp, then spent the afternoon resting and packing for tomorrow’s summit push. Since the “road” is passable to Camp 1, we’ll begin our ascent by driving that high. The forecast looks good and the team is excited for tomorrow’s climb. We’ll be in touch!
