The team started the approach trail

A.P. 3 (Dec. 17, 2018 – Jan. 5, 2019)

Yesterday they spent the night in Penitentes, where they shared dinner at the hotel.

This morning they woke up and went to the trailhead. They showed their permits to enter the Aconcagua park at the rangers’ office and after that, they were ready to begin the 3-day approach hike to Plaza Argentina Base Camp.

We spoke with Cacho, their lead guide, who told us they are fine and motivated in Pampa de Leñas, where they will spend the night. They were getting ready to have dinner, a typical barbecue made by the local arrieros.

We will keep you informed.
