Today the eighth group of this season left Mendoza. They will spend a night in Penitentes and tomorrow will begin to walk to get to Base Camp. They rode a van to Los Penitentes, the last bed and hot shower in two weeks for them.
Before that we shared a meeting and a welcoming dinner in Mendoza where we all enjoyed the local food and the wines that Mendoza always offer.
Five climbers and two guides began an experience that will surely change their lives. We wish them the best!
Here is the famous photo of all the team!
We will post more information every time I talk to them by the satellite telephone.
