DECEMBER 16 ACONCAGUA TEAM TO PENITENTES

Yesterday the December 16th Team secured their climbing permits and enjoyed the sights of Mendoza. They dined al fresco at a street-side restaurant in Mendoza, a fun and lively scene.

With permits in hand and all their gear in order, the team departed for Penitentes this morning. We’ll probably hear more from them tonight.

GREAT JOB EVERYONE!!!

Basia called in a very nice post from the site of the team’s high camp.  The team climbed up the steepest part of the route, which utilizes over 2,000 feet of fixed lines and are safely established at camp, poised and ready to climb to the summit tomorrow!

Here is Basia:
