Rene called in from the Plaza Argentina base camp this evening after a scheduled day of rest and acclimatization. It was a windy and stormy day on Aconcagua today, so it worked out well to take a day of rest. They are enjoying the comforts of base camp, including a big dining tent and a chef cooking some great meals. They’ll get up tomorrow and head up to Camp 1 to get a chance to acclimate to the higher altitudes and cache a bit of gear and food for their next move. After reaching Camp 1 and taking a break, they’ll descend back to base camp for another night of the relative luxury of base camp.
