Just talked to Chad and the Artesonraju team is at a beautiful spot in Artesonraju Base Camp. They have a rest day planned for tomorrow (Wed) when they will sort gear; Pablo might do a carry to Moraine Camp. On Thursday, the team will move to Moraine Camp and keep an eye on the weather to determine whether they’ll go for the Artesonraju summit that night or take a rest day.
Since the Paron Valley side is closed, there has been quite a bit of traffic from this side and they’re getting great reviews of the condition of the route saying that there is excellent snow and safe climbing.
We will update you on their plan by Thursday
