The group arrived safely to base camp Plaza Argentina (4250m) today. In the hike in the had a good view of the East side of Aconcagua, with the imposing Polish Glacier (picture). The team is higly motivated. Tomorrow it's going to be a rest day and they will have salmon for dinner! Base camp manager Susy has everything ready for a nice Christmas dinner. Here in Mendoza (a mere 750 m above sea level) we will make a toast to the climbers! Merry Christmas to those of you who celebrate it!
