Four climbers and a guide will climb the highest mountain in America in 12 days

They came to the mountain already pre – acclimatized, using an Altitude Training System – Hypoxic tent where they acclimatized before.

Guided by the experiment guide Wes Bunch they will do the normal route. The climbers left the city early this morning to begin their hike towards Camp Confluence where they will spend the nigth and then reach the base camp Plaza de Mulas (14,340 ft).

Last night we shared a meeting and dinner in the city where they could enjoy Mendoza’s food and wine. They are a great team!

Here’s a picture of them before leaving town.

We will post more information every time we talk to them by the satellite telephone.
