The expedition made it to base camp Plaza Argentina (14,000ft approx) yesterday. All climbers are guides are ok and enjoying a rest day. During the hike-in they shared an "asado criollo" -gaucho barbecue- with the muleteers. The group also had a nice view of the Polish Glacier (picture), from the trail. Leading guide Mike Bradley takes the time to call me every night from his sat phone -thank you Mike I appreciate it!- He says the group is awesome and weather is fine so far. I attach a picture of the East side of Aconcagua, as seen from the trail, with the Polish Glacier in the back.
