Climber Mark Biegel called in another update for the December 1st Aconcagua team, who have officially reached their Base Camp!
The climbers ascended from Casa de Piedra to Plaza Argentina (Base Camp), nearly 14,000′, gaining nearly 4,000′ feet of elevation–a big day in increasingly thin air!

Mark reports that everyone is in good spirits. Here’s the audio update:
