The team woke up this morning at Confluencia Camp, fueled up on breakfast, and continued hiking up the Horcones Valley to the Plaza de Mulas Base Camp! It’s a beautiful hike up to 14,100 feet (4,300 meters)—and a picturesque spot at the top of the valley and the base of Aconcagua—where they’ve settled in for the next few days. They are enjoying the little luxuries of base camp, like showers, and will spend the next few days there acclimatizing, recovering, and preparing to push up higher on the mountain.
Chris called in from Plaza de Mulas this evening with the dispatch. Recording
