Lead guide Eliana Camano, called today from her sat phone, to deliver the good news that the group arrived perfectly well to base camp Plaza Argentina (13800 ft). There are very few people at BC and they have the mountain almost to themselves..a Luxury on Aconcagua this days
They will enjoy an excellent dinner tonight, made by chef and base camp manager . Tomorrow will be a rest day for them. Then begins the process of carrying loads to altitude, which is good to acclimatize and to go light in the final push. I am attaching a picture of the approach to Plaza Argentina from a previous expedition. More news as they come!
