Aconcagua Update-12/2015: Todo Bien from 4300m at Aconcagua Basecamp!

Our group is doing well and have been enjoy­ing some unusu­al­ly calm weath­er here at Plaza de Mulas.
We dropped off a heavy load of gear, food, and fuel at our camp one at 5100m yes­ter­day, and are tak­ing a nice rest day here before we move onto the moun­tain to start our sum­mit bid. Hope­ful­ly we will be stand­ing on top of South Amer­i­ca in a lit­tle under a weeks time.

Our Group at the start of the trip at the trail­head.

Here is the team descend­ing from camp 1 to Basecamp.

I can hon­est­ly say this group is excep­tion­al­ly strong and also enter­tain­ing! We are tru­ly enjoy­ing each oth­ers com­pa­ny and have had a ter­rif­ic time get­ting to know each other. 

Hope all is well with all of our fam­i­lies and friends!
Mark Puglies, Moun­tain Mad­ness Guide
