We received a call from lead guide Fermin Avila that the team is all resting at Penitentes, the resort near the trailheads for the mountain. Everyone enjoyed showers, feasted on a well earned meal, and will sleep on a bed this evening, rather than their sleeping pads!
Great job everyone!
Tomorrow, they will drive back to Mendoza for their flights home… hopefully. This has been a very wet summer in the region and the road (the ONLY road) back to Mendoza was flooded today. Hopefully, the cool of night will lower the flow of the river and the road will be open tomorrow.
