Aconcagua Summit Bid Begins

The Aconcagua team checked in with another update, they are on their way up! The group tagged Camp 1 yesterday on an acclimatization move and gear carry in just three hours. Guide Adrian Ballinger said “everyone is feeling strong and healthy and conditions are excellent.” So this afternoon the Australian team and their guides left bascecamp for the summit push! The current plan is to move to Camp 1 today, sleep there for three nights, then three nights at Camp 2 and one night at Camp 3 before going for the top, conditions permitting. On descent they will stay at C3 for one night before continuing all the way back down to BC. We are wishing them good luck and great weather!
