Aconcagua Team in Base Camp

Cerro Colorado, Aconcagua

Our Aconcagua Rapid Ascent team did an acclimatization hike yesterday up to Cerro Colorado (15,500′ / 4724m), just behind base camp. They enjoyed great views of the Polish Glacier and the South Face as well. The team stayed in base camp (13,800′ / 4206m) last night and will again tonight. Today the team did another hike up to about 14,700′ / 4480m.

The plan for tomorrow is to meet with the doctor in the morning and leave for C1 (16,568′ / 5050m) after lunch. If all goes to plan this week they will summit Aconcagua (22,841′ / 6962m) early next week. Stay tuned for more updates soon!
