Aconcagua team settled in at Camp 1
Andrew Wexler called and reported that the Aconcagua group has moved all their gear to Camp 1 at 16,000-feet and will begin moving loads higher on the mountain today. After negotiating a field of penitentes (ice and snow daggers formed by the sun), they crossed a small stream and arrived at the site of Camp I. Throughout the ascent the team will adhere to the philosophy of climb high and sleep low in order to properly acclimatize. All is going well now after MM guide Alejo was flown out with a medical situation that has since been remedied. The rest of the group is settled in to their routine now and moving up the mountain!
