Penitentes hike, AconcaguaOur next Aconcagua Rapid Ascent expedition began yesterday. The team arrived safely (only a couple baggage delays) and today they drove to Los Penitentes (8,540′ / 2600m). The town of Penitentes sits at the entrance to the valleys leading into Aconcagua.

Today the team did an acclimatization hike above Penitentes to 10,000′ / 3048m. They’re staying there tonight and planning to fly early in the morning. Everyone is feeling good and excited to get moving tomorrow. Tomorrow morning they will take a short helicopter ride to base camp (13,800′ / 4206m). All is going well so far, stay tuned and follow along on Facebook and Instagram (@alpenglowexpeditions) for more updates! #AdventureDoneRight
