Aconcagua Team at Camp 1

The team moved out of the comforts of base camp and climbed up to Camp 1 today.  They pitched tents and started in on making some dinner up at over 16,000 ft.   Everyone is feeling good and acclimatized after spending 4 nights down at base camp before moving up.  Tomorrow they’ll push even higher up…
